Announcing the 2017 KAESP Fall Institute – November 6, 2017
University Club, University of Louisville, Louisville KY
Keynote: Dr. Rick Jetter
Escaping the School Leader’s Dunk Tank
Dr. Rick Jetter is a National education consultant, speaker, trainer, multi-genre author, and book writing coach. He has worked in the field of education for over 20 years and has held the positions of alternative education teacher, English teacher, assistant principal, principal, assistant superintendent, and superintendent of schools before pursuing a career in consulting, speaking, writing, and publishing. He is currently one of a very small handful of scholars and thought leaders who develops narrative theory research methodologies for transforming school culture or carrying out school reform initiatives. Rick also is working on various book manuscripts, one of which will bring technology to the forefront and help educators conceive new technologies within an internet-of-things (IOT) culture that is already among us.
Through real-life stories and by sharing insightful research, the authors equip school leaders with the practical knowledge and emotional tools necessary to survive and, better yet, avoid getting “dunked.” You’ll learn . . .
- Which emotions may be triggering your adversary’s negative behaviors.
- How to recognize the most common tactics used against school leaders.
- Why building positive relationships is important to your survival.
The keys to prevailing are being proactive, learning to recognize the warning signs of adversarial conditions, and responding quickly and wisely. Escaping the School Leader’s Dunk Tank will show you how.
In addition, Amanda Ellis and Rhonda Sims from KDE will join us to share the latest information on the new assessment and accountability system – exactly what you need to know.
Dana Blankenship, our Kentucky NDP for 2017, will share her success as a turnaround principal in dramatically raising student achievement in her school.
Don’t miss this outstanding day of learning and networking! Six hours of EILA credit will be available.
