Student EmPOWERment: Who's the Boss?

Tuesday, March 7
12:30PM - 1:30PM
Hilton Austin Downtown - Salon A


Taylor Beckwith
Excelsior Springs School District - Gifted Teacher


For the first 4 years of my teaching career, I felt that I was in charge. I felt that I needed to tell students what to do, how to do it and how to show it. I was wrong! About 6 months ago, something clicked for me. Students need to be in charge of their learning. They are the most important things in the classroom, not me. This session will be an open conversation led by my students and only facilitated by me discussing their journeys to find their POWER in school and how they took their learning back from a system that wants to dictate it for them. It is sure to have people asking, who's the boss?
