Success with Kids, Parents, and Colleagues
Presentation by Dr. Jane Bluestein
Oh, the challenges of becoming an educator in today’s fast-changing world! We’ll explore what keeps so many schools rooted in win-lose philosophies and practices, personal assets that will increase the odds of your survival and success, and specific strategies for winning in a win-lose system.
Topics include your professional identity, understanding schools in context, learning the system and building your support team, connecting with students and their parents, increasing success, avoiding win-lose power dynamics, growing your career, and taking care of yourself, with practical strategies that will help participants become a welcome, established, and effective member of a school community—without sacrificing their personality, intentions, or ideals.
For people entering the field of education today, whether straight out of college as a first career, or mid-career switchers coming to education later in life, with topics and tips relevant and helpful for veterans as well—especially those working in a lead teacher, support provider, or mentor for newcomers to the classroom.
