State Conference: A Fast Fun informative Day!
John Carver encourages participation in the 21st Century!
It all came together and what a GREAT day it was! The networking alone was phenomenal as a packed room of teachers,
administrators and legislators all came together for a day to share and learn.
John Carver, Howard Winneshiek Superintendent, started the day and passionately spoke to the advantages of using digital
devices and the connections and learning possibilities available for our kids as well as educators. Embedding technology into
instruction might mean "tweeting" out an interest in dolphins for a kindergarten student and then being able to Skype 25 minutes
later with an oceanographer from San Diego, California!
Joanne Tubbs, Administrative Consultant for the BOEE, spoke on ethical issues that
commonly affect great teachers! After dividing the room, each section of educators choose a
typical educational scenario which Joanne added a dilemma to, with the group then endeavoring
to handle the situation correctly.
Jim Gilliam, attorney with Long & Gilliam in Des Moines gave his TOP TEN
Legal Issues Affecting PEI members 2015 Edition! Jim especially hit the
ethical concerns of educators and detailed the difficult experience of having ethics
charges filed against an educator.
Lance Horbach, with Independent Insurance Services, presented on PEI’s premier
career protection, representation, and liability insurance which is unparalleled in Iowa!
Lance’s yearly talk emboldens educators confirming the expanse of coverage each one
of them has.
