Thursday Advanced Track
Designed for very experienced teachers, this is a 4 hour long workshop and will be offered on one day only.
Participants will still go to the keynote address on the day they attend this workshop.
If you choose the Advanced Track, please ensure that you ONLY attend the workshop that is relative to the age that you teach.
In this interactive session, we will be discussing methods of communication that encourage a parent’s trust in your ability. We will also learn how to have hard conversations with minimal conflict, while preserving the teacher/parent relationship
