General Session/Keynote: Equitable Access for Both Teachers and Students Matters!
Peggy Brookins, NBCT

Expanding access to accomplished teaching for both educators and their students is essential when it comes to incorporating diversity, equity, expectations, representation, support, and inclusion in teaching. This matters– because access to high-quality education across rural, urban, and suburban geographies and across diverse communities is the key to teacher retention, leadership, equity in the classroom, and shifting the paradigm of the education system. Peggy Brookins, NBCT, President and CEO of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, will explore the data behind the benefit of accomplished teaching - and show participants how equitable access for both teachers and students matters.

General Session/Keynote: This is Why We TEACH
Dr. Richard Warren Jr.

The choice to enter the teaching profession has been a conundrum for many students. This conundrum can be driven by societal perspectives on education, daily challenges of managing classrooms, student behavior, meeting instructional demands, testing standards, or communicating with stakeholders. Many of these variables often find a way to hinder a person's decision to enter this profession. How can students see teaching as a valuable profession, pursue it as a career, and take these obstacles head on? In this keynote, Dr. Richard Warren will break down 3 anecdotal stories that participants can focus on to shift their recruitment practices and perspective of the teaching profession.

General Session/Keynote: How Principals Effect Schools and Students: Developing an Equity Lens
Constance Lindsay, Ph.D.

In this talk, Dr. Lindsay will outline the latest research on principals and their effectiveness, with a specific emphasis on how those leaders might develop and employ an equity lens in their work. She will discuss three areas of inquiry. First, who are public school principals, and how have their characteristics changed over the past two decades? Second, how much do principals contribute to student achievement and other school outcomes? Finally, what drives principals’ contributions? That is, what are effective principals’ characteristics, skills, and behaviors? Finally, she will discuss the need to diversify the principalship and develop equity-focused leaders.
