April 18, 2016 – Yellow Springs, OH – The Educational Leaders Seminar Series at Antioch (ELSSA) will begin this June for educators interested in continuing their education in a professional development setting.

Led by national and local educational leaders in the field, sessions include such topics as: Learning with the Brain in Mind, Introduction to Dyslexia, Co-Teaching, Race and Education, and many more. Participants will have the option of signing up for individual sessions or can earn one graduate credit for attending two full-day sessions.

“We are excited about the return of ELSSA this summer. Bringing educational professionals together during these engaging sessions creates a forum for participants to expand their knowledge and skills while sharing their personal educational experiences. Participants will experience our deep connection to our mission using education to empower students to lead meaningful lives and to advance social, economic and environmental justice in schools,” said Michele Nobel, director of the Division of Education and Interdisciplinary Studies.
