Keynote and Workshop Topics:

Kids Deserve It

Motivational presentation - Kids Deserve It is a simple yet profound message and we should all join the conversation. Ride the bus with your students, read books to them, ride tricycles with Kindergarten students - stop making excuses and make it happen for your community!


Kids Deserve It Workshop Session

This is an excellent opportunity to go deeper with your organization and the Kids Deserve It message. Spend a half day with Adam pushing your group to think big, dream big, stop making excuses and come up with an action plan to move forward. We’ll get you thinking, moving around, collaborating with colleagues in other grade levels and departments, and most of all have the opportunity to have your entire organization in on the same conversation which builds cohesiveness and strategic goals.


Interactive Leadership Breakout Q&A

Keynote presentations are great, but let's dig deeper and have a breakout Q&A with your leadership team where we can get personal and talk specific challenges and ideas you're facing in your district. Have some personal time with Adam to develop strategies and strategic plans for moving forward with new and old ideas that will boost the mojo and learning with all students and staff!


Makerspaces

They are popping up all over the country and for good reason. You can build your Makerspace with high tech and low tech as well. We’ll talk about some must haves in a Makerspace and how to get started with whatever resources you have at your school. Kids love making and creating, and the skills they learn can translate to so many other areas.
