Peter Johnston

Two Thunder Mountain Middle School students introduced Peter Johnston (author of Choice Words) as the keynote speaker at last week's WSASCD Conference. Peter was the scheduled keynote speaker at last August's (2004) district day in Enumclaw.

Using his book as the main outline of his speech, Peter shared a powerful message about the importance of "words" that we use....questions we ask...responses we give....in either opening the minds and hearts of the learner(s) that we are facilitating or shutting down the learner and ultimately the learning.
