Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental diversity that comes with its own set of strengths. It's like having a turbocharged brain that's always ready to explore new ideas and dive into exciting projects. While focus might be a challenge, when individuals with ADHD find their groove, they're unstoppable! We'll be highlighting neurodiversity until the end of April. Is there a neurodivergence that you'd like us to highlight? Tell us! #MPS4ALL #MPSFutureMakers

Early Bird Registration Closes THIS FRIDAY, March 29, 2024, for the 2nd Annual Igniting Inquiry Conference. Don't miss your opportunity to learn from and with JESSICA VANCE. When asked "What will conference attendees learn from/with you?" Jessica said this: "Participants will explore the seven dispositions of an inquiry leader, identifying how these attributes empower all learners. Participants will be called to further consider the balance of our mindsets and moves as both inquiry and managerial leaders engaging in an inquiry process that compares systems and reflects on the cultures that we are trying to cultivate. Some big questions we’ll tackle: - What dispositions and mindsets are necessary for our roles as we lead with a lens of inquiry? - What are the ways we empower ourselves and our teachers towards a more reflective practice? - What are the small and big ways we nurture an environment of inquiry? - How can we honor the agency of “our learners” while moving our programmes and schools towards sustainable growth?"
