National Author/Speaker to Address Elementary School Teachers

Aug. 1, 2008 – Emanuel Benjamin Oliver Elementary School will conduct a special workshop for elementary school teachers from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., on Thursday, Aug. 21, at the school. The workshop will feature Martha Kaufeldt, the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development's (ASCD) national presenter and author.
Kaufeldt is a popular trainer and keynoter for individual schools, districts and institutes, as well as international educational conferences. She brings a wealth of experience to her motivational workshops, presented throughout the U.S. and Canada, which address the fundamentals of "Brain Compatible Learning," "Differentiated Instruction" and "Integrated Curriculum" for all grade levels. She has taught at all grade levels and has served as a district-level coordinator and staff developer. She most recently was the lead teacher and restructuring coordinator of a demonstration "brain-compatible" school, according to a press release from Principal Lydia Simmonds-Lettsome of Oliver Elementary.
Her particular strengths address practical brain compatible classroom strategies that teachers can implement immediately. In addition, she has coached dozens of elementary schools that are considering implementing multi-age programs and middle and high schools that are developing interdisciplinary teams and alternative schedules. "Begin With the Brain: Orchestrating the Learner-Centered Classroom," Kaufeldt's best-selling book, is published by Zephyr Press Inc. and is a practical guide for those who want to create a joyous and harmonious place for learning. These inclusive techniques help to make students feel like part of the team with no-fuss ways to eliminate distractions that inhibit learning.
Lettsome advised that all teachers and paraprofessionals assigned to the Emanuel Benjamin Oliver Elementary School are expected to attend the scheduled workshop. All other interested teachers are asked to contact the school at 775-2000, ext. 2101 and leave a message regarding intent to attend.
