How can we apply the exciting discoveries and perspectives of the Mind, Brain and Education Sciences to being a teacher? Often this research is applied to what we need to know about students and how their brains work in order to teach them more effectively.   In this session, we will flip the tables and look at the teacher's brain:  How can the research of the Cognitive Psychology, Neuroscience and the field of Education help us look at ourselves as practitioners with our own cognitive and emotional strengths and challenges?  How can we use those insights to become more effective in the classroom and in the school community?   The recent focus in research on the brain and its connections to the social and natural environments will be our jumping off point to consider the need and means for self-regulation, self-awareness and self-determination, and for increasing our positive impact on those around us.
