Award winning authors Drs. Harry and Rosemary Wong— the authors of the bestselling book “The First Days of School”— will join a host of educators and presenters at The University of Louisiana at Monroe’s Effective Professional Practice Symposium, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, at Brown Auditorium.

“Having used Dr. Wong’s book as a classroom teacher and later as a university instructor, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to see Dr. Harry Wong in person,” said Dr. Dorothy Schween, head of Curriculum, Instruction, and Leadership at ULM.

“His advice to teachers goes beyond just sounding good on the stage to being practical and applicable in the real world of teachers.”

In addition to the Wong’s presentation, award winning educators including Diane Roberts, Dr. Michael Eskridge, Darron Underwood, Dr. Darrel Cluck, Deborah Henry, and Dr. Leonard Clark will lead the full-day symposium with breakout sessions for administrators and teachers.

Sessions will cover school-wide positive behavior efforts and development of a collaborative school culture.

In-service and pre-service teachers will hear personal anecdotes and practical insights from local educators who have applied the Wongs’ precepts.
