(F) You Want Me To Do What? Implementing The Leader in Me
Implementing The Leader in Me (LIM) is daunting and intimidating, but ultimately immensely rewarding. Naturally, questions will abound when a school embarks on the LIM journey. Learn how one school used LIM to highlight and expand teaching skill sets throughout our school system by authentically integrating the 7 Habits without making it “one more thing.” Participants will learn struggles, triumphs, and tips for success after four years on the LIM journey."

THURSDAY CLINIC 2 - 12:45 PM-1:30 PM (select one)
(A) Developing Leaders and Learners in Our Schools
One of the challenges we face in our schools today is how do we develop our staff (and ourselves) to be the best we can be? The MAGIC comes from finding, creating, and providing those opportunities to grow together as a building. Participants will learn how to leverage conversations, build capacity for teacher leadership, and effectively use non-evaluative walkthroughs to foster growth."

Through implementing Leader in Me (LIM), we have built an environment where voices are heard through a myriad of techniques. Participants will learn how LIM defines school operations, permeates instruction and curriculum, and is communicated as the basis of vibrant leadership development approach."
(E) Why or Why Not? 5 Whys of Principal Determination
If you want to better focus your answer as to why you became (or want to be) a principal, this session will help you reflect, think deep, develop new perceptions, connect, and align important influences with your purpose and passion for leading. This session follows the Toyota 5-Why problem-solving model and features the presenter’s personal stories of a school’s transformation to demonstrate a deeper sense of understanding, purpose, and personal meaning for the principalship."
(F) Academic Opportunities for Hospitalized Children
This session looks at active data collections of school aged children who are seen at a local children’s hospital for chronic disease. The children tell their stories of school, family, medical agencies, and their ongoing struggle to being a child, student, and patient–all at the same time. This session will highlight three cases which promote synergy between communities and include a child’s perspective."
(G) Becoming a Change Maker: A Story of Hope
My journey in education began with teaching in a wealthy parochial school and was later turned upside-down when I began teaching in a poverty-stricken, inner-city school. I taught students who were hungry, abused, neglected, and often without hope. Through this turmoil, I questioned if I was ever going to be able to make a difference in the lives of my students. Key takeaways include how to become a change maker and find the real reason for doing what you do."
(H) Tell Your Story
Time after time we find ourselves getting lost in stories. We go on adventures, suffer heartache, celebrate wildly, and suspend belief as we consume the stories of others. But how often do you find yourself sharing YOUR story? In this session, Todd Nesloney will share pieces of his story, and why it’s crucial you share your own story, including practical ways to take that first step, tools to use, and ways to overcome fear and self-doubt. Why? Because every story matters."

Key takeaways include the long term effects of this strategy and the resources necessary to facilitate learning walks in a building."
(E) Every Student is Known: Meeting the Needs of All Learners
At Highland Middle School, the belief is that every student should be KNOWN, and the staff aims to design instructional and relational practices that achieve the goal of knowing students. Utilizing the online tool Summit Learning Platform, staff can set goals, track progress, navigate digital content, and develop higher-order cognitive skills.

FRIDAY CLINIC 1 - 10:30 AM-11:15 AM (select one)
(A) Lead From Where You Are
“I’m just...” It’s a phrase we hear all the time. I’m just a teacher, I’m just an assistant principal, I’m just a tech director, I’m just a custodian….the list goes on and on and is always followed by reasons something CAN’T happen. Leadership is not a title; it’s an action, and it starts from within. Identifying leadership traits in yourself changes your mindset when thinking about leading those around you. This fast paced and engaging session will help you identify your own leadership traits and implement practical ways to increase your capacity to find them in others."
(B) Building and Sustaining a Positive Culture
This workshop is grounded in partnership principles which lead to effective and easy implementation when you return to your school. Participants will be given key components and strategies to increase a positive school climate and culture through motivation, decision making, and leadership. Participants will take away ideas for starting the school year out strong, battling the mid-year grid, and celebrating accomplishments."
(C) Math + Vocabulary = Success
Vocabulary instruction–who has time for that? You do! Participants will learn how to implement Marzano’s six steps for incorporating vocabulary instruction in the math classroom. We will provide practical strategies and resources that can be used the next day in any classroom. Don’t miss this opportunity to raise your students’ achievement!"
(D) Elementary STEM Resources: Integrated, Inexpensive, and Immediate

(H) What Strategy Did You Use? How to Help Students Develop a Personal Relationship with Mathematical Strategies
Our focus is on operation-based strategies that move students from effective to efficient problem solvers. Using class-created micro-progressions, students assess their own level of skill, gain exposure to other strategies, and move toward finding their own efficient strategy. By creating discourse within the classroom, students are aware of multiple ways to solve problems and are more aware of ways to access problems because they have multiple tools within their own personal “math mind.”"

(F) The Magic of Our Principals’ Support Group: Why It Works
Are you looking for a “support group”? Come to our session and learn more about IDEA (Instructional Development for Educational Administrators) and how it has positively impacted our group. The group includes principals from elementary, middle and high school. Our strength is in our differences."
(G) Three Words Will Grow You and Your School
Relationships matter, and they are the basis for the conversations, connections, and collaboration that have had an impact throughout history. In this session, the story of two school districts will challenge participants to take time to converse, connect, and collaborate to build relationships for growth."
(H) What Strategy Did You Use? How to Help Students Develop a Personal Relationship with Mathematical Strategies
Our focus is on operation-based strategies that move students from effective to efficient problem solvers. Using class-created micro-progressions, students assess their own level of skill, gain exposure to other strategies, and move toward finding their own efficient strategy. By creating discourse within the classroom, students are aware of multiple ways to solve problems and are more aware of ways to access problems because they have multiple tools within their own personal “math mind.”"
