Special guests

Sam Chaltain, author of Faces of Learning and American Schools, National Director of the Forum for Education and Democracy

Paul Leopoulos, Director of the THEA Foundation of Arkansas

At this year's conference, we will examine many facets of the people who make up the OKA+ network and the challenges and commitments that we face together. We will hear again from Sam Chaltain, a favorite speaker from last year’s conference, as he shares his latest book, appropriately entitled Faces of Learning. We will welcome new faces from Arkansas A+ Schools, and we will hear an inspiring story of one A+ face, Thea Leopoulos, from her father, Paul.

EVERYONE at this year's conference will get to hear from Sam and Paul in our large all-conference session, "Faces of Learning: The Power and Impact of Engaging Curious Minds."
