Confidence is the feeling or belief that one can rely on someone or something. This is not always an easy feeling to achieve. However, as we work through various challenges that test our levels of comfort, we can slowly develop our confidence as educators. Confidence in having difficult conversations and moving up professionally are just some of the daily experiences that we face. In this keynote presentation, Dr. Eakins shares personal stories and research regarding the significance of being confident as educators when facing uncomfortable situations.

Take a journey with Dr. Eakins as he shares his experiences as an educator living overseas and his introduction to culturally responsive practices. Session attendees will understand the value and impact of addressing their biases to teach through a culturally diverse lens.

The Legend of Zelda was released on the original Nintendo in the US in 1986. This game revolutionized the gaming industry in many ways, including an open-world format and the ability to save your game and not have to start from the beginning every time you turn on your Nintendo. What does this have to do with education? In this presentation, Dr. Sheldon L. Eakins will share with the audience how to harness their “Triforce of Power” (Power, Wisdom, and Courage).

This session discusses ways parents can learn to advocate for their children at school. Dr. Eakins will share personal stories on helping parents ensure equitable practices for their children's needs.
