World Class Professional Development in Memphis.
The Martin Institute for Teaching Excellence is delighted to have Christian Brothers High School (CBHS) sponsor the keynote address by Will Richardson this year at the conference on June 12 – 13.Chris Fay, principal at CBHS, shares the school’s enthusiasm for the work of the Martin Institute,
“CBHS enthusiastically support the mission of The Martin Institute in providing world-class professional development for teachers. Better teachers mean a better Memphis for everyone. The quality of presenters and speakers is second to none and it’s in Memphis! In particular, Will Richardson is internationally respected because his vision of learning forces us to begin changing our schools’ ecologies. We can no longer “do school” like it was done when most teachers were high school students. His ideas stretch us beyond what’s comfortable. At CBHS our teachers are learning and growing beyond their comfort zones in order to meet the needs of this generation. It’s imperative that we invest in and support the mission of The Martin Institute as they accompany us and teachers from around the region on meeting the needs of the current generation of students.”
We are glad to have CBHS onboard as a sponsor!
