Workshop 2

Saturday, February 5, 2021

“Choose To Assume The Good In People”

Facilitator: Lilyan Prado-Carrillo
You know what they say about people who assume? Let’s change that!!! What would it mean to your home, your workplace, your circle of friends, your class… If people leaned to “Assume the good in others”?

We all have heard how much attitude plays into our daily life. And many of us think we have a great on, that is… until something happens that negatively affect us. We Immediately think what’s happened is other peoples’ fault and not our own! It’s our nature to jump to conclusions and assume that others are just out to get us! What if we actively decide that is not the case?

“F___It!: How To Throw Up Your Hands In Celebration Instead of Frustration”

Facilitator: Chris Collins
Whether you know it or not, you’re kind of a big deal!! The work you do impacts lives in a special way. However, your path comes with unique challenges (staffing, funding, burnout, apathy) that may strain your resolve and hinder your ability to succeed. Let’s spend some time learning how to see those challenges and say “F____ it!” We’ll discuss practical tools to empower you to continue to do extraordinary things for the students you serve and for yourself.

“My Father’s Daughter”

Presenter: Lilyan Prado-Carrillo
Lilyan shares her personal story of overcoming many obstacles as a child, and using education as the vehicle to accomplishing a fulfilling life. As an undocumented child, working since a young age, overcoming abandonment, and being surrounded by alcoholism, Lilyan’s story is one that connects with audiences of all ages and backgrounds. Personal anecdotes take the audience on a roller coaster of emotions, told from the perspective of a 5-year-old scared child, to an 8-year-old daughter enamored with her dad to an angry teenager, to a first generation High School and College graduate, educator, and national speaker. Lilyan humbly shares her personal history in a transparent, humorous, and bold way, empowering all that listen.
