Believe: The Power of Belief
When was the last time you truly felt someone believed in you? For some of our students, it’s been way too long since they were overwhelmed with the positive power of belief. In Amy’s keynote, she shares how powerful the power of belief can be for ourselves as educators, for the teams that we work on, and most importantly, for our students. Amy shares everyday stories she’s encountered as an elementary principal that have completely transformed her school community. Her passion for her students demonstrates that the power of belief is real, and if you aren’t so sure, let Amy convince you otherwise.
