Rachel Thomas & Steven Lamb: Steven and Rachel work as team teachers at two very different schools in Albuquerque. They told us a story on the TEDx stage last year about the valuable impact of connecting with classrooms outside of your own school, just as they have. They even showed us how to do it! They are back again with a whole new talk about grappling with technology in the classroom and connecting not only your students more effectively with it, but the instructor too. Let them transform your technology frustrations and encourage you to enjoy the art of this process a little bit more.

Melinda Forward: Passionate about helping schools create a connected, healthy, and inspired school community, Melinda knows the challenges educators are facing in schools. Why? She lives it every day. Melinda is an activist for happiness in schools with a new vision for you. Do you believe in the magic of kindness? We hope so! Melinda is ready to share her radical solution to the negativity that is chasing so many students and teachers out of schools. Get ready to Pass Your Gratitude ON!
