In the city of brotherly love, please join us and learn how to build cultures of care, compassion, and love in the critical middle grades. These keynoters will enlighten you with their perspectives and stories on this important area of our young adolescents lives and the success of our schools.

We Hold These Middle School Truths to Be Self-Evident … and Worth Fighting For

Tuesday, 4:35 p.m.–5:25 p.m.
This rousing session, featuring education thought leader and passionate middle level education advocate, Rick Wormeli, will celebrate teaching and leading in our middle schools. You’ll attend a simulation of the Second Continental Congress—this time with a focus on middle school rather than the Declaration of Independence—as we celebrate the goals, energy, and successes of middle level educators. Rick will bring you style, flare, and excitement, and inspire and recharge you to stay committed to the important work you do.
