Conference Year: 

2019

Primary Speaker name: 

Join NCs Teacher of the Year and the Western Region Teacher of Year as they share their personal stories of resiliency and using their stories to build bridges. Freebird's story to "choose happiness" and discover his purpose, has allowed him to to be the Village Teacher, and engage his students at Maslow's highest level, leading to his self-actualization, and realization for his school, his community, and his students. Julie shares how reclaiming the narrative of "THAT KID" moved to becoming "THAT Teacher" by understanding how trauma can be addressed by building critical relationships and experiences through passionate public educators.
