JJEM Education & Consulting, LLC strives to provide professional development experiences that exceed your expectations. Our learning events offer engagement, flexibility, networking, knowledge, growth, strategies, content, captivation, critical thinking, equity, diversity, enrichment, authenticity, reflection and action surrounding today’s student-centered professionals, communities, students, and families. In our professional development settings, learning outcomes are aligned, supported, and taught by the very professionals doing the work. Our mission is to provide a high standard of organic community learning for those who educate, lead, raise, work, advocate, coach, volunteer, or provide services, programming, and support for students in early education, elementary, middle or secondary school, higher education, and beyond. If these professional learning priorities align to your values, goals and work, The Whole Child Compass Conference…Back-to-School Edition is for you and your team.
For today’s students, the ways they navigate the world of education, community, and life, are constantly changing. Digital optimization has added both limitless benefits and dire new challenges for our youth. Moreover, the evolving needs of our youth present new barriers and a greater need for applicable, ongoing training for those who work with them. To best meet these needs and serve our student populations, schools, classrooms, childcare service providers, community programming, and after school activities, we must continue to grow and adjust the way we support, communicate, guide, interact, and teach. This vital work truly begins to evolve when we invest in the very people doing the work with our students, in whatever role they play. They are our greatest asset. And, they notably seek quality, diverse, and inclusive collegiate networking and professional development opportunities led by experienced experts who have the “boots on the ground” background that drives their investment in the teaching, learning, and growth of other professional partners.
The goal of The Whole Child Compass Conference is to provide access to trainings from varied professional leaders on expansive, critical topics, and educational opportunities that will help attendees successfully understand and meet their students’ needs. This conference presents instrumental content areas that provide a strong foundation of new learning in the areas of strength based communication, maximizing quality data and data analysis, mental health, trauma, cultural competency, reading interventions, MTSS, working with at-risk kids, behaviors and de-escalation, restorative practices and unconscious bias, and more! These crucial topics are designed to extend our learning and help us guide our students as we prepare to open the ‘23/’24 school year.
For the Whole Child Compass Conference…Back-To-School Edition, I have hand-selected sixteen first-class educators and professionals who are not only passionate about serving their districts and communities but also desire to learn, grow, and commit to the education of our children. They are educators, administrators, teachers, community leaders, and parents, who have invested and dedicated their knowledge, time, and hearts to making a positive change in our schools, communities, and students’ lives. These incredible people are agents of change, child guides, ambassadors, advocates, out-of-the-box thinkers, data-driven problem solvers, strategic planners, champions for kids, and most importantly – they are people who live their lives putting the whole child first in every aspect of their careers and personal lives. They are people we can trust to educate and facilitate positive change within our communities. They are the vested professionals with the road map to growth, change, success, and fortitude as our students take the next steps in their lives.
I invite you to take this learning journey with me and this exceptional team of professionals and lifelong learners. In both our synchronous and asynchronous learning time, you will explore important topics of today, with practices, strategies, and systems that will enhance the work you do professionally with students. As part of this extensive conference, you will have full access to all session recordings for ongoing learning following the live event.
Come along with us for the The Whole Child Compass…Back-To-School Edition and chart your individual or team course as a JJEM Education & Consulting learner and collaborator where together, we are guided by the heart of learning for every student, every day.
