The Lake County ROE's SPLASH Conference, the only county-wide Institute Day, is an opportunity for teachers, administrators, and the entire educational community to join together for a day of Summer Professional Learning focused on acquiring new ideas, sharing insights into how we will transfer our learning into actionable change, and honoring equitable practices as we move forward in our teaching and learning.

Keynote Presenter:  Thomas Murray


Staying Personal & Authentic in the Midst of Adversity

The pandemic has brought uncertainty at every turn. Opening the past two school years in the midst of a global pandemic created significant anxiety and a loss of sleep for all educators, regardless of position. As we lead through

uncertainty, how can we create a culture where both students and staff can thrive? How can we work to overcome fear and fail forward when things don't go as planned? How can we ensure technology plays its proper role, and “innovation” doesn’t become a graveyard of tech tools? Grounded in relationships, and built upon a culture for learning, personal and authentic experiences respect the hidden stories within each individual and are learner-centered by design. Regardless of what happens outside our school walls, together we can work to create meaningful opportunities when we hyper-focus on the things that matter most. The work is hard, but our kids are worth it!
