The College of Education at Lipscomb University is pleased to present Summer Alumni Summit 2015 with the theme "The Way Forward: Teaching and Learning." Our keynote speaker is Ms. Karen Vogelsang, a National Board Certified Teacher and the Tennessee Teacher of the Year for 2015. Ms. Vogalsang will speak on "Teacher Leadership -- What is it? How do we get it?"
Sometimes you just have to be that “one lone nut out on a hill,” to make an impact on the education of today’s children, advised the Tennessee State Teacher of the Year Karen Vogelsang at the recent second annual Summer Alumni Summit of the College of Education. Vogelsang borrowed her theme from Derek Sivers’ TED Talk titled “How to start a movement,” in which he showed an Internet video of one young man dancing on a hill in the middle of a crowd. The “lone nut” is ignored for a little while, but within three minutes, the entire crowd is up and dancing with him.
