10:00 - 11: 30 am EdCamp EOP - Harbor Room
Unlike traditional presentations where content is pre-determined, EdCamp participants generate the topics for focus during the session, with one individual facilitation the discussion.  The format works beautifully to create a session focused on your interests and needs.  Participants choose 2 or 3 focus areas.  EdCamps are a great way to get energized around topics of interest and result in a session focused on the needs and interests of those who attend.

        Trauma Sensitive Schools:  How Trauma Impacts the Brain & Strategies to Support Students

Many students in our schools have experienced trauma in their lives, and the impact this can have upon the developing brain is significant.  As front line staff members, we see the effects of this daily, namely the rising number of students who walk through our doors demonstrating social, emotional, behavioral, and academic challenges today.  This session will help participants better understand the effects that trauma can have upon the developing brain, what impact that has upon learning and behavior, and how we as adults can respond in helpful, trauma-sensitive ways to support the students we serve

    Harnessing the Power of Your Inner Superhero

We all make snap judgments of people based on their physical appearance, their position in a company, where they live, etc.  This often seems like a negative, but it doesn't have to.  We can use these stereotypes and judgments to our advantage, disrupting preconceived notions and challenging common stereotypes.  Through the process we learn how to be more effective communicators and leaders.
