MEET OUR SPEAKERS:
1:00p - Nicholas' Journey
Lois is a literacy spokesperson for struggling learners who have failed in the traditional classroom. Through coaching and workshops at international conferences, TV appearances, and highly-rated radio stations, she uses her own story in Reversed: A Memoir to teach educators and parents how to create flexible learning environments using comprehensive and innovative teaching methods. Come hear about her Journey with her son Nicholas. At the age of 7 he was called the "worst child seen in 20 years of teaching" but eventually went on to receive his Ph.D from Oxford University.
