He continues to consult with universities on equine assisted learning programs curricula. In his live horse demonstrations, Chris will explain how horse sense and behavior relate directly to student behaviour. Honest, positive relationships between horse handlers and horses result in positive learning. The opposite is also true. During this double sessions, Chris will work with horses to coach audience volunteers on how horses read and react to human behaviour and body language. Those interactions will be translated into classroom behaviour between teachers and students. Learn how to build authentic, educational relationships with all of your students, including not only the successful but also the wounded, at-risk, disengaged, rebellious, defiant, even gifted and talented to facilitate your teaching and to maximize their learning. Students need you, their teachers, to be your best selves-every day, every period. In many cases, you are their only hope. Students attend to your body language, attitude, and word choice. Learn how to avoid building helpless, destructive, joyless, negative relationships and how to create therapeutic, educational, positive ones in this impressive and memorable session. Participants wishing to volunteer to work with Chris and the horse are required to wear solid, fully closed, flat heeled footwear for safety reasons.

“Your Piece of the Puzzle” Each of us is known by the choices we make in life. These choices (our puzzle pieces), impact our personal lives, and the lives of the students and adults we interact with each day. Our greatest influence on others is the example we set each day, both personally, and professionally. What are we willing to risk? What is the focus of our dreams? How much do we truly care about others? What are our expectations? This session centers on how we choose to answer these four questions. Plenty of laughter will be shared in our discussion.

As teachers, it is our duty to learn who those children are, what, where, when, why, and how we can respond and to seek out help.

How did this all-state basketball player become one of the top quarterbacks in the top Arena Football League in the country? Attending Western Kentucky on a basketball scholarship, Nick returned to SIU and was persuaded to not only play basketball but to also give football a try. The rest is history and the left handed throwing quarterback and tight handed shooting basketball guard was one of the last players cut by the Chicago Bears! The session will not leave any question uncovered, from why he gave up basketball, to what does the future hold. This should be an exciting session, not just for football minds, but for all southern Illinois sports fans!

“Football Coaches’ Panel” Any coach knows you must have great assistants to have a winning program in any sport. In southern Illinois football, there are countless assistants who do a great job! Today’s coaches all took different paths to get where they are today. This should be an enlightened session for all fans. Is being a head coach in the future for this panel or are they satisfied where they are at? Those invited for this session include: Carterville’s Kevin Helfrich, Duquoin’s Keith Ellis, Herrin’s Dwayne Summers and Eldorado’s veteran football coach Vern Pollack.

“Basketball Coaches’ Panel” This may be one of the most entertaining sessions in the history of the Mt. Vernon Conference. Deon Thomas will stay and team up with invited Illinois teammates TJ Wheeler and Tommy Michael. How did a player from Chicago Simeon end up as best friends with southern Illinois products from Buckner and Hoffman? These three will reminisce back into their days at Illinois playing for coach Lou Henson, Jimmy Collins, Dick Nagy and Mark Coomes. No teammate of theirs will be forgotten but some will be singled out more than others. If you’re an Illini fan, or just a basketball fan, you won’t want to miss listening to these three guys.

“One on One with Deon Thomas” Deon Thomas is the leading scorer at the University of Illinois (2129 points) and is currently Athletic Director and Head Men’s Basketball Coach at Lewis and Clark Community College in Godfrey, Illinois. How did Mr. Basketball in Illinois (1989) and the 28th pick of Dallas end up coaching? Maybe his years overseas playing professional basketball in Spain, Israel, and throughout Europe had something to do with it. In Deon’s first year coaching the Trailblazers, his team finished fourth in the nation, losing both games in the final four in double overtime. Deon was named “coach of the year” in his conference, region and was also named top coach in his division in the state. This session will be one where you will need your clip board; it will be an X and O session where moderator, Tom Wheeler, will pick the mind of this very talented player and rising young basketball coach. Special emphasis will be placed on post play as this was Deon’s specialty. Coach Lou Henson has always said, “Deon is the best post player I ever coached!”

“Using Hollywood vs History in the Classroom” Students are more familiar with the “history” presented by the film industry they are with the actual historical events. This session looks at how to use movies to teach history in the classroom. Students are encouraged to look at what they see on the silver screen more objectively and possibly even to do some research of their own.
