Relationships, Relevance, Responsive Culture, Rigor, Results…Join author and teacher Kayla
Delzer in this interactive workshop designed to revitalize learning, relationships, and the classroom environment. Kayla explains how to release the power in the classroom by giving students ownership of their learning and making it relevant to them. Breaking down the four walls of the classroom allows her students to become globally connected - and you won’t believe the endeavors her students conquer by embracing leadership skills and purposeful technology.

The Council for Public School Improvement is a public school/university partnership between Kansas school districts and the Kansas State University College of Education. CPSI was established in 1985 and focuses on enhancing the quality and effectiveness of public school instruction and student achievement through targeted professional development.  CPSI received the University Professional and Continuing Education Association Central Region's Celebration of Excellence Award for Mature Non-Credit Programs. This award recognizes a program which demonstrates longevity and sustained
innovation.
