The external affairs team of Mrs. Ledbetter, Mr. Boyles, and Mr. Hinds will present to education leaders from all over the world this winter at the National Association of Independent Schools conference in Boston.
The Oakbrook external affairs team consisting of Mrs. Ledbetter, admission director, Mr. Boyles, development director, and Mr. Hinds, head of school, have been invited to Boston to present at the premier event for independent school leaders - the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) annual conference. Leaders of independent schools from all over the world come together each year to engage in professional dialogue about best practices in independent school education.
The theme for this year's event is Design Thinking: Blending learning, leading, and innovation. The concept of design thinking has been a major focus of educational research in recent years as schools search for ways to help students develop the critical 21st century skills they will need to succeed in a rapidly changing world. The external affairs team is proud to represent Oakbrook Preparatory School at this prestigious event and bring best practices back home to Spartanburg.
