The speakers included Krista Stanley, who is the 2020 - 2021 Florida Department of Education Teacher of the Year. Stanley was honored among more than 176,900 Florida public school teachers and is a sixth-grade teacher at Yearling Middle School in Okeechobee County, Fla.
The Summit presentation is part of Stanley's role to promote and celebrate the countless contributions of Florida's teachers while providing professional learning opportunities to educators and recruit future teachers into the education field.
Additionally, keynote speaker Jeremy Anderson motivated the online participants as a leading expert, author, and one of the premier motivational speakers in the educational arena. His focus is to help students and teachers become the best version of themselves. Years ago, Jeremy experienced many challenges such as drug and alcohol abuse and constant failure in school. He was able to become a powerful speaker who inspires and instructs students, teachers, and leaders on how to take their lives to the next level.
The Summit also featured lively breakout sessions, a positive think tank, Brain Based Therapy with Liz Villanueva, MS, LMHC, and tips on relaxation with organic gardening basics, beginning and power yoga, Zumba and cooking classes, and dance, among others.
