Keynote – The Power of Relationships
Presented by:  Dr. Adam Saenz

Is it really possible to build life-impacting relationships with students from your position in education?  Licensed psychologist Dr. Adam L. Saenz answers with a resounding, “Yes!”  Dr. Saenz presents two case studies that will encourage you by reminding you that what you do in your role in education doesn’t just matter – it matters deeply.  We in education are uniquely postured to make life-changing impacts in the students with whom we interact every day.  Is there any higher calling?
