Parent Engagement: The Missing Link

Parent Engagement: The Missing Link

CIC (map)

There is no substitute for parent engagement.  Parent partnerships are often the missing link to student achievement and teacher retention in urban schools.  Come ready to learn and utilize a problem-solving tool to analyze Parent Engagement and Teacher Retention in urban schools. Be ready to give critically-needed feedback as a focus group.

Created for Teachers this event will help uncover immediately-implementable elements necessary to:

  • Create, repair, and rebuild the School-Home relationship

  • Provide what teachers need to feel confident about staying in the profession

  • Make a measurable, long-term positive impact on student literacy

This will be a WORKshop to make a difference in your school/community.

Join us for a solution-focused discussion with exponential potential!

An "UNconference" devoted to all things STEAM in K-12 education.

Breakout sessions focused on implementing Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics into every grade level and multiple subjects for all learners. 

Participants will walk away with several strategies to implement and integrate STEAM into all forms of curriculum. They will also be able to build a network of STEAM educators to share experiences and newly discovered lessons and connections.

What is an UNconference?

An unconference is basically a conference without predefined topics. There is a high-level structure and theme, but actual topics are generated by the participants on the spot, and breakout groups are formed dynamically based on interest and relevance.

Thank you for registering for checking out the EdCamp Leadership event hosted by Connected Learning at North Kirkwood Middle School. We are so happy that during your summer break you are excited about meeting up with other administrators and leaders just like yourself! 

You Are Coming, Who Else Should Come?

Think of this as a team event.  A team event where a central office staff, school board, administrative team, and/or district leadership team all attends, learns, shares and collaborates on a vision for the future of their school or district.  EdcampSTL supports teacher learning, the Edcamp Leadership is an event focused on educational leadership.

“Feel” of the day

Most sessions are unknown to us right now.  The majority of sessions will be made up on the spot and done in an “unconference” style.  Have expertise to share?  Share it.  The sessions will be discussion driven and conversation focused so no powerpoint/keynote slides necessary.  As with all Connected Learning events, we will encourage the “rule of two feet.”

I’m new here...Please help me!

For many of you, this is your first edcamp experience. We are excited to have you attending, and we believe that it will transform your professional learning forever. Below are some great videos that will give you an insight to how this day of learning happens.

Amir Azulay - Certified ATB Trainer
Amir was born in Israel in 1969. He left Israel in 2000 with his wife, Tamar, on a journey to India, leaving behind a well-established business of 7 years. After three years of study and exposure to diverse disciplines aimed at expanding consciousness, they joined the International township of Auroville in South India, where the years of research into a deeper, more integral approach to education had given birth to the Awareness Through the Body (ATB) Program in Auroville schools.

During the following years, Amir was trained as an ATB facilitator under the guidance of the founders of this approach, Aloka Marti and Joan Sala. Since then he has focused on the ATB practice and teaching ATB to children in the Auroville schools, as well as offering workshops to adults.

Today, Amir is focused on reaching out with this discipline into wider India, United States, Israel and South Africa. He says, “ATB as a tool that aspires to facilitate a process of inner growth, to allow a chain of changes to unfold and manifest for a better life, and a better planet.
