1. Focus on the Moments! (Opening Keynote)
Speaking: Dr. Brandi
Consider that there are 23,363 schools using Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports. That is approximately 11,762,345 students receiving supports within a PBIS framework (pbis.org). Each student attends approximately 180 days per school year which translates to 950 hours or 57,000 minutes of instruction (www.centerforpubliceducation.org). This equates to 670,453,665,000 moments per student per year. Education is a profession with challenges and demands every minute; a high rate of decision-making every minute; and, high stakes. In each moment, we have the opportunity to improve the likelihood of our students’ and educators’ success. If we have a bad moment, we can turn that moment around and make the next moment better! Let’s make every moment count!
