"Every child deserves someone to be crazy about them.” This is the mantra of Salome Thomas-EL, award-winning teacher and principal, and internationally recognized educator. Principal EL believes that resilient teachers and leaders take risks, make courageous decisions, and challenge the status quo. They are able to bounce back from adversity to become innovative and transformational to ensure all students are exposed to an engaging curriculum and effective teaching. Transformational leaders also shift mindsets and inspire students to develop positive attitudes and relationships with others. In his thought-provoking presentation, Principal EL will share how we can develop positive school cultures that foster the social and emotional development of all students, so teachers and leaders can focus on the protective processes that build responsible decision-making and resilience. In his keynote address, Principal EL brings a powerful combination of love, passion, caring, and leadership to craft a refreshing, common-sense road-map for teachers and administrators to help kids achieve their dreams, no matter the odds.
