General Session Speakers
Opening General Session
How did Adam Sáenz go from
juvenile detention to two doctorates, with training at Harvard Medical
School and the University of Oxford? Adam will tell you: It was the
power of a teacher.
Sáenz, author of "The Power of a Teacher,"
will be the first to admit that his journey through life so far has
been an amazing one, filled with tremendous highs and profound lows. At
every important juncture, there have been two common elements,
lifesavers that appeared when he really needed it—education and
teachers. Along the way, this son of blue-collar parents has gained two
doctorate degrees. Adam is not your ordinary school psychologist. His
personal story will inspire you; his General Session will empower you!
