Courage is the fuel that feeds the Heart & Soul of a Leader. It takes courage, raw effort, and determination to take an idea and see it through to completion. Why is it that so many ideas are not getting finished, some not even started? Unfinished plans, ideas, and projects are an outward indicator of an inside glitch. Find out what’s tripping you up – what you could be missing. There is a reason you’re running out of fuel and raw effort before you cross the finish line.

Ben_Brown sm
Ben Brown, Williamsburg Learning

Ben started reading about the same time he started talking, and he’s loved doing both ever since. He has this insatiable hunger to know everything and so he reads all sorts of topics – history, philosophy, psychology literature, business, leadership, science, current events, etc. He can’t stop and just learning things though; as soon as he’s learned something new it wants to come roaring out of him to the first person he sees, regardless of how interested they are So, mentoring was a natural fit for Ben: it gave him a venue to teach and a reason to learn. He studied liberal arts in college and received a BA from George Wythe University in 2010. Currently he is helping to build Williamsburg Learning as a Mentor, Curriculum Director, and Science Program Leader.

Lucas_Reynolds sm
Lucas Reynolds, Williamsburg Learning

When Lucas was a boy he dreamed of growing up and being a college football star – 6’3″, 230 pounds of solid muscle. He was sure he would win the Heisman Trophy and go down in history. Then his dream changed. At age 14 h e was given a choice: he could either join the high school football team or become a TA at a local private school. After a few weeks of swinging back and forth, he finally made a decision: he wanted to teach. He didn’t realize at the time how much that would shape his life. He never made it to six-feet tall, or even 150 pounds, but he has enjoyed teaching youth with four different organizations in a variety of subjects: from Shakespeare to Economics. He currently is helping to build Williamsburg Learning as a Mentor and Assistant Executive Director.

Adult Breakout Session – “Cultivate wonder and find the extraordinary in the ordinary”
One of the most wonderful things about science is how many mysteries and unanswered questions we still have. What is light? Why is quantum physics so incredibly bizarre? What exactly is matter, or time, or gravity? We don’t really know. There are two types of wonder, that of being with something and experiencing a moment of awe for what it is, and that of curiosity and questioning. Both are captivating and with the right approach, both types of wonder can be an integral part of every science lesson, making science a fantastic bridge to the other core subjects of reading, writing, and arithmetic.

Adult Breakout Session – “Becoming A Powerful Math Mentor”
Is your math just making calculators out of your kids? If so, why are they memorizing math rules and procedures or even studying math at all if they have an actual calculator that can do everything their being taught? The hard truth is, we don’t need human calculators any more, we need self-reliant, powerful thinkers. Think about it, no one sat down with Isaac Newton and told him: “here are the 3 steps to do calculus.” He had to observe patterns. He struggled. He hypothesized. He experimented. He failed. And then, he discovered calculus. Your kids can do this too. They can become self-reliant thinkers through what I call the Discovery Method. Families across the world are thriving int his new approach to math. For them, math has become an engaging and powerful part of their homeschooling. They’ve learned to unlock the potential that mathematics has to teach their children how to think and reason and become self-reliant problem solvers. So if you think to yourself: I am worried that my kids are behind in math. – I’m not sure I know math, so how am I supposed to teach it? – I am sick of sending my kids off with workbooks. – I wish my kids didn’t dread doing math. – I wish I didn’t dread math time. – My kids are doing the work, but are they really learning math? Then this presentation is for you. Come learn how you can do this in your home, no matter what curriculum you are using. It’s time to create the math program you really want.

Marilynn-Clark
Marilynn Clark, Inside-Out Methodology
Marilynn founded a non-profit in 2007 after many visits to Africa. Seeking a root cause of the extreme poverty, she came to understand that the existing rote-learning methods only taught students to memorize, but did not teach creativity, analysis, character, or the joy of learning. Therefore, the lack of innovation and a moral compass had impacted the sluggish economy and harsh social conditions. The positive outcome of 5 day teacher training seminars and the requests for additional training has been significant. To meet this growing need, an online training has been developed. Now all teachers can benefit from the Inside-Out methodology.
Adult Breakout Session – “How can you prepare students for 21st Century jobs and to be contributing members of society?”
