WE LEARN,TEACH,INNOVATE AND COLLABORATE . JULY,2018
I was honoured to have attended this year’s Conference in Atlanta Georgia USA, being a first timer; I was blown away by the enormity of the Conference. I have been to several Conferences over the years especially the NBA (Nigerian Bar Association) but this particular Conference met every bit of my expectations.
The first working day, A group of school owners and I from Nigeria visited a school called West Wood Academy. This school has a kindergarten and High School, although as expected the High School starting from their middle school, which was in a separate premises. What I saw in the school that started off in 1900 as a Military school for boys and later admitted girls, was a structured learning environment and their discipline was high. I did not see any student walking around; they were all in their respective classrooms/laboratories throughout our visit.
We had several lectures by educators at the general sessions such as: everything you need to know about heading school changes, where experienced administrators know that under the most favourable condition change can be challenging.
Another thought provoking lecture was whether independent school fees was worth the tuition? We discussed issues and found that, the independent school leaves no child behind. We also achieved success in both cognitive and non cognitive issues. There were over 100 lectures over a period of 3 days and it was practically impossible to attend 3 lectures in a day, as there were excursions to interesting places such as CNN Center, Martin Luther King Centre and Atlanta Aquarium.
It was a new learning experience for me, seeing Educators from different schools in the United State of America (USA) and outside USA as far as Dominica Republic. I could not network as much as I could as the crowd was large. However, I intend to do more of that at the next Conference in 2019.
Dr Ogunsanya, our amazing chairperson has done a wonderful job and I do commend her emotional strength and organizational skills at the Conference.
this just an official report of my attendance at the conference. Above all the learning experience will defiantly impact on the student.
to my graduating class… I will miss you all but we must part for all of you to move forward in your various academic fields.
I wish you all well and I know that, you will make the school proud, be good ambassadors, believe in yourselves, be confidant at all fronts and remember that, the Sky is no longer the limit.
