Keynote Address – Thursday, November 21, 2019

John Perricone

With over thirty years of classroom experience and numerous local, state, and national excellence in teaching awards to his credit, it is Mr. Perricone’s thesis that “we teach who we are” and that one’s philosophy of life is intimately tied to one’s philosophy of education,  and that it is this “philosophical identity” which ultimately distinguishes those who find joy and passion in the teaching profession from those who find drudgery and simply pick up a paycheck every two weeks.

“Why Am I A Teacher?: Developing a Philosophical Identity”
