Marching Off the Map, with Dr. Tim Elmore

Date: 1/26/2018  Start Time: 8:30 AM  End Time: 12:00 PM  Location: Academy of the Sacred Heart, Rauch Memorial Gym, 619 N 2nd St., St. Charles, MO 63301

The Baby Boomers were the first generation who grew up with the one-eyed babysitter: the TV. Today, they are parents and teachers, and they're now raising a generation of firsts - kids who are growing up with a portable device in their hands. How do we navigate this world that isn't going away, but that is reducing the empathy, patience and emotional intelligence of our young people? This event provides a compass for leading a generation of "firsts" full of practical tips for marching into new territory while enabling our kids and students to embrace timeless values and soft skills.

Faculty and Staff will learn:
  • Inspire students to own their education and their future
  • Lead students from an attitude of apathy to one of passion through metacognition
  • Enable students to push back from the constant digital distractions and practice mindfulness
  • Raise kids who make healthy progress, both emotionally and mentally, through their teenage years
  • Give students the tools to handle the complexities of an ever-changing world
  • Understand and practically apply the latest research on Generation Z
