Over 550 staff from Southeast Kootenay School District 5 and Rocky Mountain School District 6 will be attending the annual Regional Specialist Association (RSA) Day in Cranbrook with our keynote speaker Dr. Martin Brokenleg.

Dr. Martin Brokenleg, co-founder of “The Circle of Courage”, consults worldwide for Reclaiming Youth International.  The Circle of Courage is a model of positive youth development that offers concrete strategies for creating environments in which all young people can grow and flourish.

Dr. Brokenleg holds a doctorate in psychology and is a graduate of the Episcopal Divinity School.  He has consulted and led training programs throughout North America, New Zealand, and South Africa.  He is the father of three children and an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe practicing the culture of his Lakota people.  For a complete biography and more information about Dr. Brokenleg please visit https://www.reclaiming.com/content/brokenleg.

At the urging of teachers, five days were added to the school calendar for professional development in 1972.  RSA Day is planned by local teachers, with an emphasis placed on workshops led by local teachers and education partners who have particular interests and specialties to share with their colleagues.  In addition to Dr. Brokenleg’s keynote, 29 workshops are being offered at the 2014 RSA Day.

This conference is being hosted at Mount Baker Secondary School.

Mark April 7 on your calendar and ask a teacher what they will be doing on RSA Day.
