On August 13, 2015, I had the pleasure of presenting a workshop at the Prince William County School district’s Excellence and Equity in Education conference. This year’s theme was “providing a world-class education: reflecting, refining, and refocusing.” Patriot High School served as the venue for this professional development event.

It was a thrill to lead this workshop for three “sold out” breakout sessions: A21, B28, and C1. Wow!
And it was perhaps ironic or symbolic that these sessions were located in Room 2015 of Albert Einstein Hall.
Of course the conference started with a nutritious light breakfast prepared by the cafeteria staff. After the fresh fruit, I liked the cinnamon scones.
A round of Jeeepardy served as an excellent icebreaker and energizer.
Dr. Adolph Brown entered the auditorium dressed as … Well, he had dreadlocks, a backpack, and fatigue pants and looked like he didn’t quite belong. Well done, sir. Well done!
And by the end of his keynote, he had everyone ready to commence toward a new year and brighter future.
Most of the classrooms at Patriot HS are equipped with user-friendly audio-visual systems.
Here are the results of a large group exercise based on the Ben Franklin Method of decision-making.
This image shows the results of the multiple intelligence self-assessment by participants from sessions A, B, and C. Naturally, in a group of teachers we see a large number of ‘people smart’ people.
Presenter gift bags — filled initially with a bottle of water and snacks — made for a handy way to collect business cards. Kudos to the multiple intelligence community at the Montclair Elementary School.
