Catapult Learning is looking forward to attending the Missouri Association of Elementary School Principals (MAESP) Leadership Conference at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri from March 12-15, 2016. MAESP is the only statewide association in Missouri that exists for the purpose of serving the needs of elementary and middle school principals, assistant principals and those educators with an interest in becoming principals. MAESP is a statewide professional association that has grown to include over 1,000 school administrators. The services provided by MAESP to its membership have also increased as members have identified and approved long-range plans incorporating key services.
The opening keynote speaker is Will Richardson. Will has international recognition as a leading thinker and writer about the intersection of social online learning networks and education. He is an outspoken advocate for change in schools and classrooms concerning the new opportunities the Web offers for learning. He has also authored four books, one being the #1 best selling TED book ever. Will has been featured in a variety of journals and newspapers such as Education Week, The New York Times and Ed Leadership.
The conference will end with keynote speaker Manny Scott. Manny is an Original Freedom Writer whose story is partly told in the Hollywood flick, Freedom Writers. His story of how he “turned the page” on his life that was on a path of destruction to fulfillment aims to inspire and help others transform their lives. In 2007, he founded Ink International, Inc, an education consulting firm that helps over a million people improve the quality of their lives as well as those around them. He is the author of three books, one of them only being available to people who hear him in person.
