Leadership/Teaching Seminar students in Mr. Lowery’s pathway program plus some other potential educators recently attended the Yes, You Can Teach conference hosted by Samford University on its campus in Birmingham.  Samford education students conducted several informative sessions, while professors facilitated the conference. Alison Grizzle, 2013-2014 Alabama Teacher of the Year was the keynote speaker. Her topic was “It’s complicated”; education is much more than lesson plans, state and local regulations, and providing information. Today’s teachers must be devoted advocates of their students in spite of what the “powers” may dictate to school systems.  Pictured are Michael Kerr, Tess Smith,  Maddie Hine, Luis Rodriguez, Jacob Tinsley, Chesley Bristow, and Alan Holderfield.
