The Mindset of Effective Educators

Dr. Robert Brooks was a highly motivating and engaging keynote speaker. He talked about how we should be asking ourselves, “Starting today, ‘What is it that we can do differently to have a positive impact on the relationships we build with our students?’” especially those who are struggling with reading and learning. One of his suggestions was to be a charismatic adult, someone who must touch the heart as well as the mind. We can do this by making all children feel welcome in our presence.
