Igniting the Flame Within: The Pursuit of Student Success
Monday, July 18, 2016

Deep within each one of our students is a desire to achieve greatness.  How greatness is defined for each of them, though, is dependent on the type of ‘kindling’ they carry.  Are they inspired by the arts and yearn to create original pieces like Jackson Pollock?  Do they dive into the sciences and secretly wish to plan the first colonization of Mars?  Perhaps they hunger to write the next great American novel in the spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald or Harper Lee!  As parents and educators, we need to figure out what spark will ignite the fire within each of our students in order to bring their dreams to life.

With ever increasing demands in terms of rigor and relevance within the classroom, it is more important than ever to foster our students’ dreams in order to help them become 21st century learners.  Join us at the 2016 Statewide Conference on Education of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing and walk away with the power to ignite your students’ kindling into bursting flames of learning!
