General Session

Friday Morning Keynote

Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch

Leadership is not about you. Leadership is about serving. This keynote addresses the philosophy of servant leadership and one’s call to duty. Using her life as an example, from barely surviving in the barrio of Laredo, Texas to receiving an award from the President at the White House, Consuelo serves her audience by challenging them to look inwards and rise to the call of action. In this presentation, Consuelo stresses the importance of Preparing Tomorrow’s Leaders Today! The audience will not leave without hearing the message that “leadership” is not just a framed, wall decoration, but it is an action that one must take for the betterment of his community and the generation to follow.

Each one of us can cultivate inspiration, empowerment, and hope for our students, families, schools and communities. Through story-telling and examples from the field, Katie will engage us in thinking about how the WABE community can be the inspiration we need to commit to transformative, collective action for the students we serve.
