SHOW LESSCREATING A FRAMEWORK FOR SCHOOL SUCCESS
Stephen Peters offers the participant a refreshing look into the positive side of public education. Peters states, “We hear much about low test scores, high drop-out rates, expulsions, low teacher and student moral, and public distrust of the quality of education being delivered to children, but there is another story to be told.”
The training will emphasize the following important concepts:
• Schools that operate at a high level of success are creating meaningful transformations because of a dedicated and committed group of individuals who understand synergy, today’s youth and themselves.
• Belief systems can act like filters in the brain, influencing the way we see the world. Successful schools understand that their beliefs have the potential to drive their actions as they interact with students and each other.
• Successful schools establish a culture based on relationships, aligning belief systems and reciprocal respect.
• Successful schools empower collaborative teams and engage their staff in purpose driven data analysis.
Peters will use the book “Choosing to Believe: Creating a Framework for School Success” as a resource for this workshop. The book is an Award Winning USA Best Book 2010 and a Finalist in the 2010 International Book Awards for the Pre-K12 Education Category.

CAPTURE, INSPIRE, TEACH: UNDERSTANDING YOUR STUDENTS’ NEEDS
School districts are now faced with the monumental task of providing resources for school leaders and teachers to engage a generation of learners they don’t understand. This training provides strategies and approaches that will affirm and validate teaching effectiveness in the classroom. Mr. Peters will provide a framework for reshaping school culture, affording teachers and students an opportunity to become part of the solution collaboratively, instead of remaining part of the problem separately. The Capture, Inspire, Teach model is a three step process being used by thousands of teachers in the U.S. as an effective delivery system for active student engagement.
