Ravi Hutheesing, better known as just “Ravi”, will kick off the 2018 National Family Engagement Summit! Ravi is internally well-known, not only for being a cultural diplomat for the U.S. Department of State but for his rock star guitar playing for the band Hansen! He is the author of the book; “Dancing with Hansen” and we are eagerly hoping that he will “Mmmmbop” across the stage for us during his keynote presentation about “Millennial Mojo”.
“The classroom must do three things; nurture talent, inspire curiosity, and provoke critical thinking.” – Ravi
“It’s not about teaching cultural competency, it is about un-teaching cultural incompetency.” – Ravi

Dr. Adolph Brown will join us on day 2 of the Summit and bring his wit, humor and master storytelling to the stage and have us laughing and crying all at once! Dr. Brown comes from a humble and troubled inner-city beginning, complete with rural farming lessons from his granddad. He credits his success on his beginnings in Head Start and public education. He is a thought leader, author, humorist and master teacher. He is a family and community engagement speaker that will challenge our stereotypes of becoming “naysayers to supporters” and he is a highly sought after Title I Speaker that will revolutionize our thinking from “low income to high outcomes”.

Todd Whitaker will join us for the last day of the Summit. He is an American educator, writer, motivational speaker, educational consultant and professor. He is the author of over 40 publications, including the national best sellers; “What Great Teachers Do Differently” and “Dealing with Difficult Parents”. He will address our attendees on the subjects of teacher leadership, staff motivation, and principal effectiveness.
“A good teacher has a love of teaching. A great teacher has a love of learning.” – Todd Whitaker
