This week, I have had the pleasure of collaborating with Jessica Raleigh on one of the two #DEPLA2016 Keynotes. We have each had the pleasure of knowing and inviting two high school students to share their experience as a student with teachers from around the district. We we able to meet (in person!) to discuss the format, logistics, and some thoughtful guiding questions to help students meaningfully share their stories. Below is a tweet that accurately captures how great this meeting was for each of us.
Today, we were able to meet with the students at the Emily Griffith Campus to discuss presentation logistics and prepare the students for the kinds of questions teachers may ask during the Q & A session. In the process, we were amazed by the inspiring stories that the students already shared with us. I have no doubts that the Keynote next week is going to be incredible and inspiring! You can find more information about the Keynotes for #DEPLA2016 on the DEPLA website. If you are in the Denver area and not already registered, you can register here. Hope to see you there!!
