Erika Horsley is a teacher, coach, consultant, mom, and founder of Love, Morty. With 16 years of experience teaching, she now offers coaching and consulting services supporting teachers holistically so that they can show up regulated to co-create caring classroom communities with ease.

Show Highlights

    • Build classroom culture that increases students' achievement.
    • Effortless SEL and self-awareness support for teachers and students.

  • Manageable steps to avoid being dismissive to the voices in your building.

“Being able to share power in an appropriate way with the students is a good thing. It’s an important thing because ultimately this is for them. If we say that we're doing this for the kids, but we want to have power over them, is that really for them if it's controlling them? This is one of many major mindset shifts that needs to happen in teachers and in schools.”

Travis Allison hates mushy fruit but loves jam. It’s not just fruit that Travis thinks about in great detail. His creative and conscientious persona has made him a keynote speaker at conferences across the US and Canada.

 

Travis knows his mission: to help organizations create spaces where children and young adults can be truly noticed and appreciated.

 

Show Highlights

  • Solve “pain points” to normalize feeling inadequate in the “new normal” for your  learning community.
  • Systematize kids' contributions to create connections to your community.  
  • Tips for schools prove your mission and vision. 
  • Savvy public school leaders use this loyalty marking tool.
    • You can’t be an expert in everything but use your expertise to focus feedback. 
    • How to meet frustration with a little gratitude, some empathy and curiosity? 
  • The private podcast you need to take the pressure off educators and help parents feel like allies. 
    • Intentionally design engaging moments with the most powerful thing you can give a child. 
    • Successful ways to connect with millennial parents.
  • Address children’s mental health issues without developing a new set of skills.

 

“The lens that I look at this through involves kids, whether it's in building or cleaning, not to teach them a skill and check it off, which is valuable, but to depend on them for their work is the difference between being wanted, which is great and needed. There's a lot of neuroscience research that as soon as we perceive we are needed by a community, we are then much more connected to that community. Travis talked about the power of being seen. A great way to help kids feel seen is to say, `we need you.’”

Cory L. Cain was raised amongst the vast palm trees of  Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He has served as a teacher, lead teacher, dean, department chair, assistant principal, and principal.  In these positions,  he has focused on communicative approaches to teacher-led professional development, cooperative learning, and data-driven instructional practices and has led the STEM department to record standardized test scores. Previously, he led a teacher-led hiring initiative that he created, based on behavior-based interviewing; developed Yale-based, social emotional training classes for teachers; and has spent the last year helping eradicate educational inequity by becoming a leader in working with educators to envision a new story where the power of personal relationships nurtures academic, social and emotional growth for young people at Wendell Phillips High School in Bronzeville. After spending nearly twenty years working in urban education, focusing on communicative approaches to teacher-led professional development; cooperative learning; data-driven instructional practices; behavior-based interviewing; and Yale-based, social-emotional training classes for teachers, he aspires to serve as a coach that focuses on creating inclusive communities where all people are treated with respect and dignity, where multiple perspectives and experiences are welcome, and where students from all cultures and backgrounds can succeed.  

Cory holds a BS in biology; minor in Spanish;  and an MBA in marketing from the University of Miami;  a Masters of Science in Organizational Leadership from Columbia University, a Certificate in School Management & Leadership from Harvard Business School, a Certificate in School Discipline Reform from Loyola's Law School, and just recently finished his law degree  at Northwestern University’s Pritzker School of Law.

In his free time, he enjoys reading, dancing, cooking, music, getting trapped in new TV series, and thinking about what new degree to acquire.

James Anderson is an Australian-based international speaker, author and educator who is passionate about helping fellow educators develop students as better learners. Originally a teacher and school leader, for the past 20 years, James has been working with schools to make classrooms more thoughtful places. He challenges teachers to think deeply about their own Mindsets and how their beliefs are communicated to students in often subtle and unintended ways.James’s work combines Growth Mindset with Habits of Mind and Practice to create Learning Agility. He puts the growth back into the Growth Mindset! And, through creating and describing the Mindset Continuum, he provides the cornerstone for effective Growth Mindset interventions. James values the relationships he builds with the schools and teachers he works with, providing the “follow-through” that’s so often lacking in teacher professional development. His speaking, workshops and online resources provide not only the deep understanding required to do this work meaningfully, but also the tools and ongoing support needed to sustain it in your school and make a real difference to student learning outcomes.

James will show you how to create your school-based Growth Mindset Style Guide to ensure your school consistently “nudges” all students towards an increasingly growth-oriented Mindset.

James is a Certified Speaking Professional and regularly speaks at conferences around the world. His previous publications include Succeeding with Habits of Mind, The Agile Learner, The Learning Landscape and The Mindset Continuum, as well as a host of e-books and other teacher resources.His online course, “Transforming Teaching and Learning with Growth Mindsets,” supports thousands of educators in schools around the world.

“One of my favorite quotes is ‘there is no growth without discomfort.’ If we're going to grow, we need to be comfortable with that feeling of discomfort, knowing that to grow we are going to feel uncomfortable. Seven out of ten uncomfortable, not nine or ten out of uncomfortable, not way off the deep end going, ‘Oh my god, I can't do this’, but uncomfortable enough.”

You realize the world was designed and it can be redesigned and redesigned and redesigned and reinvented. We hope our students have that realization early on in their experience with us that everything around them was designed and they actually can be a part of that.”
