KAESP Updates


KAESP Fall Institute 2022

KAESP  reinstated its annual fall institute on November 17, 2022.  It was a tremendous success!  Dr. Ruby Payne provided the keynote.  She provided insight into the brain of an angry or anxious students and then provided a wealth of strategies to effectively deal with students.  Here are some pictures from the day.

We are already looking forward to our Fall 2023 Institute.  Any thoughts on keynoters?
