Michelle Trujillo presents "Start With the Heart" at Corwin’s 2019 Annual Visible Learning Conference – Inspiration and Motivation for Teachers! "Start with the Heart" is Michelle’s Trujillo’s presentation that speaks to the “why” and “how” of inspired teachers and leaders. Educators will be asked to consider what it means to be an ignitor of hope and why it is necessary for educators to serve in that role.  Participants will learn strategies for intentionality that emphasize the leading influence on student learning based on Visible Learning™ research: Collective Teacher Efficacy. Five ways to ignite hope will be illuminated as activators of educator resiliency and an empowered purpose. Participants will leave this presentation understanding that connecting with students (and adults!) by meeting them right where they are, is a vital key to having highly expert, inspired and passionate teachers and school leaders working together to maximize the effect of their leading and teaching on all students in their care.
