About

The

Conference

The National Best Practices Conference brings the best teaching and learning strategies to ALL teachers and programs; Bilingual, ESL, Gifted and Talented, Special Education, Core Content, Early Childhood, and Technology.  This conference meets the needs of ALL teachers, administrators, and support staff.

Teachers, administrators, and support staff learn effective strategies from members of the same program or a different program! Educational "silos" are no longer viable. Instead, we learn how to best meet our students' academic and/or linguistic needs from practicing practitioners from specialized areas!

Conference

philosophy

Our philosophy is to bring together staff from entire campuses to learn together how to best meet the needs of their students who reflect a myriad of educational needs.

PRE-CONFERENCE

2023 Best Practices
Early Childhood Pre-Conference
Wednesday, February 22, 2023

Mike Longoria, a.k.a. Dr. Mike!, has a Ph.D. in early childhood education and has over 30 years of early childhood experience as a Pre-K, kindergarten, and special education teacher, Head Start administrator, university professor, independent consultant, and curriculum developer.

 

Dr. Mike has keynoted state and national early childhood conferences and has conducted professional development for PreK and kindergarten teachers across 25 states, including over 125 ISDs in Texas. Teachers leave the training with a better understanding of how music and movement engage the brain in meaningful learning; while promoting long-term retention and accelerated learning...it brings JOY to education! Furthermore, this joyful approach to learning meets the needs of ALL students.

In addition to conducting keynotes and professional development, Dr. Mike also develops multi-sensory early literacy resources that support oral language, vocabulary, early reading skills, and brain development through music and movement. His resources "Sing to Read" and "Sing and Sign" (Cantar y Leer" / "Cantar y hacer Señas) are currently being implemented across the country.

Music and movement touch our emotions, emotions get our attention, and attention leads
to learning
