2021 Virtual Table Talks

We encourage you to come and go from these table talks as you would if we were together face-to-face. They will be held as breakout rooms within the same Zoom Meeting as the keynote sessions.

Growing up Different:
Many children in our classrooms seem like all other well developed and stable children, but hiding under that outside mask is a very different secret. A secret that for many is a terrifying reality. Growing up different in who you feel you are, and how you are seen by the outside world can, for many, be the defining aspect of their lives. So how do we create environments that allow for these children to feel safe, accepted and willing to peek out from behind the mask. Come join us for a table discussion on “Growing up Different.”
