From the classroom to the boardroom, creating a culture of compassion is essential to the success of every student, teacher and administrator. Join National Teacher of the Year Finalist, Alex Kajitani, for a bold and honest look at why some schools and organizations flounder, while others thrive. Attendees will leave with real, practical strategies that address: • How leaders can drive the culture of their organizations. • How social-emotional learning and proactive prevention are the keys to stopping bullying at all levels. • Why educating the “whole child” means educating the whole school, district and community. Throughout this session, Alex will present the latest cutting-edge research, and weave in effective teaching techniques with stories of triumphs and failures, so that can you return to your school or district with strategies that work.
Alex Kajitani has presented at several education and business conferences on the topics of school culture, leadership, and effective instructional strategies. One of his books, "Owning It," is being used in thousands of schools and districts around the county, and was named "Recommended Reading" by the U.S. Department of Education.
