CACE Day 2017’s guest speaker will be Dan Waldschmidt.
Take your personal (and professional) development to the next level with a no-nonsense conversation with Dan Waldschmidt. He wants to empower you with the focus, insight and accountability you need to achieve the consistent results you want.
Using the 1,000+ stories and case studies that he researched when writing his best-selling book, EDGY Conversations, Dan will captivate you with stories about the small city who stood up against the greatest king who had ever lived, how to run 100 miles when you’re too tired to move, and how smart companies make millions more by being more valuable. No bullet points. No theories. No boring Powerpoints. Real talk from a guy who has helped the biggest companies in the world (and the smart teachers who helped them get there) dominate their industry. Now it’s time for you to do the exact same thing.
As a sneak peak, there are 6 key lessons that all high performers in business, math, sports, science, and politics have learned to get to that point in their life and career. In our time together we’ll explore:
The superpower of outworking everyone else around you
Why being weird is essential to massive long terms progress
How to use the right technology to get what you want
Why you should say “NO” more often to yourself
How to be so valuable people can’t live without you
The toughness you need to develop to stay focused
Breakout Session 1: Tracy Corbin and Rani Belanger
Psychological First Aid
Audience: Any person interested in becoming a Red Cross volunteer, particularly within disaster response
Psychological First Aid (PFA) is a 90 minute course designed to prepare Red Cross volunteers to provide basic care, comfort, and support to people who are experiencing disaster-related stress. This course is an excellent first step in becoming a Red Cross volunteer and will equip you with the knowledge needed to respond to disasters both in your local region and through deployment to disaster areas across the nation. There are no prerequisites to this course and you will become qualified to provide “triage” services at disaster sites. This course is also a requirement for any qualified person interested in continuing on to become certified as a Red Cross Disaster Mental Health volunteer.
Breakout Session 2: Allison Reed & Sarah Lagerstrom

There will be a focus on designing your instructional plan to accelerate student growth and engagement. Participants will be given tools for building transparent pathways with learning goals for students. Strategies for leveling and targeting instruction, as well as flexible grouping. Developing a growth mindset system of student goal setting, reflection and instructional feedback to accelerate learning through the identified learning progression. (I.e.

Breakout Session 4: Craig Kesselheim, Great Schools Partnership
Principal Session – Leading the Implementation of Proficiency Based Learning
- Identify leadership leverage points for PBE
- Collaboratively work through specific actions that will support grading reform in your district
- Refine personal, school-centered leadership goals for your year of leadership
When it comes to grading and reporting reform, school administrators are deeply engaged and highly influential participants. The leadership landscape includes classroom practice, new school structures and routines, community engagement, professional development planning, fostering new dispositions in students, and creating an overall coherence of these moving parts. This session will allow school leaders in The County to collaborate around multiple points of leadership, based upon draft policy language that describes and defines what proficiency-based grading and reporting will require. The session will also include a short reading/discussion, choice-based group work, and personal leadership goal refinement in the area of leading grading/reporting reform.
