NEEDED: Teacher-Leaders for the 21st Century
Mounting evidence suggests perhaps more now than ever, teacher-leaders are crucial for the current generation of students to thrive and survive. What would this innovative approach look like for those in Christian Schools? What is so unique about this generation and how can teacher-leaders address the critical needs? The audience will be encouraged to firmly reconsider the very important role they play in the lives of their students, the profession, and society. They will also be equipped with seven specific actions necessary to ensure they make the most positive intentional impact on this generation.

What's SO Unique and Challenging in 21st Century Classrooms: Practical Solutions and Responses
Have you been noticing something strangely different with today's students and educational climate? The pace of change in our world can no longer be calculated using single-digit addition but exponential multiplication. Those born after 2000 espouse vastly different attitudes and behaviors toward learning and authority and it seems shocking.  Following a practical and insightful description of today's students, Dr. Mackey will outline a "must-do list" if we are to be impactful in our teaching!
