SAM Administrators Institute

July 24-26, Best Western Great Northern, Helena

We're excited to announce this year's  SAM Administrators Institute 2023, Resilient Leaders, Healthy Schools, July 24 - 26 at the  Best Western Great Northern in Helena. This event will focus on the importance of resilient leadership in creating and maintaining strong and successful schools.

Resilient leaders play a crucial role in building and maintaining healthy schools. When leaders are able to model and promote resilience, it can have a positive impact on the entire school community. By prioritizing self-care and fostering a culture of resilience, leaders can help teachers, staff, and students navigate challenges and setbacks, and ultimately, create a more supportive and successful learning environment.

We have a lineup of outstanding speakers including Pete Hall, author of  Relationship, Responsibility, and Regulation: Trauma-Invested Practices for Fostering Resilient Learners, who will be providing keynote and breakout presentations.  James Bailey, co-author of The Daily SEL Leader, will deliver a keynote presentation and breakout session highlighting the significance of leaders cultivating resilience within themselves before they can foster resilience in others. By reducing workplace stress and burnout, leaders can improve retention rates. The presentation will emphasize the importance of developing resilience, building relationships, maintaining positive communication, and implementing effective collaborative practices. By doing so, leaders can enhance school cultures that prioritize effective learning and well-being.

Assemble your leadership team,  aspiring administrators, and teacher teams.  SAM Administrators Institute 2023 will provide professional learning opportunities for all.  Stay tuned for registration and full conference schedule details.
