Proposals for Creating a Culture of Belonging and Dare to Design Due Soon!
We have two exciting conferences coming up in early spring - Creating a Culture of Belonging (February 6-7, 2020) at Good Shepherd Episcopal School in Dallas, TX, and Dare to Design (March 12-13, 2020) at Trinity Preparatory School and Park Maitland School in Orlando, FL!

Creating a Culture of Belonging is a PK-12 conference (formerly known as LLI Southwest!) focusing on all aspects of teaching and learning, particularly those that speak to building a positive, open culture in schools. Workshops received so far include digital literacy, mindfulness, historical thinking and empathy, and more - but we've still got space for YOUR best teaching! 

Proposals are due December 1, 2019!

Dare to Design is a PK-12 conference - a brand new one! - at TWO schools, showing how design thinking can lead to creative solutions, even when it comes to conference planning! Teachers who use design thinking are better equipped and empowered to engage their students, and we're seeking your ideas, tips, and resources for creating an environment where everyone dares to design! So far we have workshops on graphic design, technology, breakouts, teaching technology and design thinking to early childhood students, and many more, but we still have a little space, and would love to have you as a presenter!

Proposals are due December 15, 2019!

A Note from the Assistant Director
Happy November! 

Where has this year gone? It seems like only yesterday we were celebrating the new year. With Thanksgiving right around the corner and Kindness Day earlier this week, it reminds us all that there are so many things to be thankful for, even with our busy schedules.

Earlier this month Lausanne Learning provided a PD day for teachers that was similar to an EdCamp. We asked the teachers what they wanted to learn about the initiatives going on at the school and designed a schedule around their needs. We enlisted facilitators instead of presenters to lead the conversations and sharing of resources. The next day on campus, there were so many teachers who approached me and thanked me for the PD day.  One teacher even said it was the best PD day ever! Teachers got to learn from each other, share resources, and connect with colleagues they don't normally see on a daily basis. This experience confirmed that if you listen to the needs of teachers, students, parents, or any stakeholders and make plans surrounding those needs, powerful things can happen.

I am most thankful for my supportive family, my amazing friends, and the ability to inspire students in my classroom. I love having a wonderful network of teachers both in person and online. I am  also thankful for the opportunity to connect with amazing teachers and leaders, like you!

What are you thankful for?
