Join Dr. Anthony Dallmann-Jones for a full day devoted to dedicated educators at his Pre-Conference titled:

Educating for Safety, Effectiveness and Success

Successful shools stress practices.

And the first commandment for every educator in the building is student safety.

Dr. Anthony Dallmann-Jones  will lead a 21st Century look at the role of stress in our schools and how to differentiate Toxic Stress from Productive Stress and what to do about it
