Establishing Positive Connections with Your Students
Claudine James, NBCT Teacher and Community Liaison, #1 Educator on TikTok

Everyone faces challenges in their lives, but middle school educator, Ms. James, has never allowed challenges to bring her down. Despite all of her hard work, there was always someone who thought it was not enough. Instead of letting this tear her down, she used this to teach her students “When they go low, we go high”, which is just one of the many powerful quotes she utilizes. Before becoming the #1 educator on TikTok, she was an award-winning educator. Claudine has always gone above and beyond, writing grants, applying for classroom tools, and traveling to summer teacher institutes to help enrich students' learning experiences and grow within herself to be the best educator she possibly could be. Join this Master Class as Ms. James shares how she’s overcome obstacles, created a powerful platform to engage her students in the learning process, and make life-changing connections with her students.

Define Resilience
Dee Hankins, Inspirational Speaker, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

One of the many dictionary definitions of “Resilience” is the ability to easily adjust to misfortune or change. However, if you’ve ever had a traumatic experience, you know that most times we don’t easily adjust to things. Here is my definition- Resilience: The ability to bounce back! Similar to how we are all different, so are our experiences as well as how we bounce back from those experiences. In this session, we will learn that we are the true definition of resilience. We’ll take a deep dive into how we bounce back from our circumstances and, more importantly, how we Define Resilience!
