Leadership series for educators features Neeley, renowned education author-lecturer Marzano
250 educators from area districts enroll for first-in-four series
School reform and trends in education highlight Texas Commissioner of Education Dr. Shirley Neeley’s lunchtime guest appearance at “Leadership Today for Tomorrow’s Schools,” Thursday, Sept. 28, from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Harris County Department of Education, 6300 Irvington.

Specifically, Neeley discusses the impact of House Bill 1 and the curriculum changes in store for Texas schools.

Renowned 35-year educator Dr. Robert J. Marzano headlines the educators’ conference entitled “What Works in Schools: A Framework for Selecting the Right Work.” His education model offers a framework that details actions that a school, classroom and student should take to ensure dramatic academic achievement.

“As a longtime pioneer for school reform, Dr. Marzano’s presentation sets the pace for the 2006-2007 school year,” said Kris Reid, Harris County Department of Education Instructional Support Services consultant. “We are enthused that Commissioner Neeley will be visiting with area educators about the current school year.”

As the author of 20 books, Marzano is recognized for translating research and theory into practical programs and tools for K-12 educators as a presenter throughout America, Europe and Asia.

“Leadership Today for Tomorrow’s Schools: A National Speakers Series on Trends and Issues in Education” features four presentations throughout the school year. For more information, access www.hcde-texas.org  or call (713) 696-1308.
