Navigating a sea of change – from stormy waters to safe harbors
Thursday Keynote: Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak
Hi! I’m Kristie, and I help inspired educators, who desperately want to see all children thrive. I provide training, tools, and other resources to support educators in dealing with high-stakes accountability mandates, to push against pressures to “ready” children for Kindergarten, and to address the diverse learning needs of children through intentional teaching delivered within the context of everyday activities…including play.
Friday Keynote: Tim Harris
The famous quote from Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it” has been the driving force behind the life of Tim Harris. Born in 1986 with Down Syndrome, Tim’s life has been defined by exceeding expectations and inspiring those around him. Tim’s Place Restaurant opened its doors in 2010 as the “World’s Friendliest Restaurant. “In August 2014, Tim Harris started Tim’s Big Heart Foundation (TBHF), a New Mexico non-profit corporation that aims to inspire people from all over the world to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives via entrepreneurship and inclusion in their communities. Tim is looking to help other individuals with intellectual disabilities start their own business. Tim believes that anyone, with the right support, can achieve their dreams.
