The Bilingual/ESL Department at Region 10 ESC in North TX holds an annual symposium for their 500+ educators. This year, due to the COVID pandemic, the event was help virtually.
I was honored and humbled to be invited as their 2020 Symposium 'Power Of Unity' keynote speaker. I was so excited to connect and meet so many passionate educators who are working hard to provide their very best for all students.
The keynote presentation was on June 23rd and it was a way to kick-off the symposium - teachers had a long day of sessions to attend right after the keynote.
My presentation title was 'Shifting from Statistics to Stories'
The presentation was streamed LIVE so you can find the recorded version on my YouTube channel below.
On day two, June 24th, -- I was invited to present a breakout session. I had 200+ participant register for my session which was exciting but very nerve wracking.
I am very passionate about sharing the amazing things my students are doing in the classroom - so my session was driven by my students' work.
Title: Creating Authentic and Meaningful Lessons for Newcomers
I was very excited to see the engagement and the high-level participation from attendees.
Here's a Padlet we created with responses and entries during the presentation. You are welcome to add to it if you'd like.
If you get a chance to watch any of these 2 presentations, please let me know. I'd love to have your feedback. Your feedback is what is going to help me do better for next presentations.
