Event description

Description

We are pleased to announce the return of Gateway Impact's 2nd Annual Powerful Learners Conference focused on student agency, or non-cognitive skill development, including social emotional learning through an equity lens. Together, we will build capacity in our schools and community spaces for honoring the unique needs and gifts of our students, setting the stage for them to thrive and break cycles of structural inequity.

We are thrilled to be collaborating this year with experts from Boys and Girls Clubs of San Francisco, Peninsula Bridge, and the Stanford Teacher Education Program. This wide range of expertise and perspectives allows us to provide sessions that will prove useful to anyone and everyone who supports K-12 students, whether you work in the classroom, in the non-profit sector, or are still in university studying to become a teacher.

A day for teachers, leaders and those serving youth to:

  • Learn concrete student agency tools and practices to help your students become powerful learners

  • Connect with educators from other schools and organizations and share best practices

  • Enjoy top-rate professional development, camaraderie and food!


Sessions will cover:

Unlocking Student Potential: strategies and practices that guide our interactions with youth, as well as building environments and cultures where young people feel safe and empowered to take risks.

Supporting Expert Teaching: professional development, coaching and collaboration strategies that empower educators to create purposeful, warm, and effective learning communities.

Partnering with Community: Workshops for all educators whose roles require them to liaise between their organization, families and the broader community, focusing on how we can leverage the strengths and resources of the Bay Area for the benefit of all students.

Fostering Strong Schoolwide Practices: Sessions designed for administrators and organization leaders who are ready to act as a force for change at their site, focused on developing a clear vision and plan for cultivating social emotional capacity organization-wide.

Interested in presenting? Submit a session proposal! Proposals due Nov. 30, 2019.


Gateway Impact is an initiative of Gateway Public Schools dedicated to improving educational outcomes for all students through conversation, collaboration, and celebration. By creating forums to share ideas, best practices, and successes, we aim to leverage the collective wisdom and commitment of educators and help close the achievement gap.
