Unlocking Potential: Learning and the Brain
Cecily’s Advocacy Workshop
Saturday, November 12, 2016
Each year, McLean School invites both nationally celebrated and community-based experts on learning and development for a symposium highlighting new research and best practices in fostering growth for K-12 students. Now in its 8th year, Cecily’s Advocacy Workshop has grown as a key resource in the Washington metro area, attracting an audience of over 300 parents, educators, and child development professionals.
This workshop is named in memory of Cecily Kodis Kaufman, a devoted McLean School parent, loving advocate, and mother. Cecily was an inspirational member of the McLean School family. For many years, she was a steadfast member of the Parents Association Executive Board. Cecily left her mark on the hearts of all who knew her by her selfless, giving spirit to the McLean School community.
Co-Chairs, Jeanett Yonemoto (Jillian ’27) and Lillian Hagen (Ben '21) thank the keynote speakers, Dr. Ellen Braaten, and Dr. Daniel Pine, and the workshop presenters for this incredible day.
