Key Note Speaker - Andrew Sharos

Andrew Sharos is a national presenter, professional development provider, and keynote speaker. He currently works as as an Assistant Principal at West Leyden High School, winner of the College Board's AP School District of the Year in 2014. For three consecutive years, Andrew's students had the highest test score averages in the state of Illinois and he was a finalist for the Gilder Lerhman National History Teacher of the year in 2014. This May, Andrew and Pirate Books are teaming to publish his first book, 'All 4's and 5's: A Guide to Teaching and Leading AP.' Andrew lives in Chicago with his wife, two boys (with another child on the way) and is excited to share his passion for building an AP class around student voice and what's best for our students.

Keynote: All 4's and 5's has been given as a keynote at AP national and state conferences across the country. In May of 2018, All 4's and 5's will be released as a book that tells the story of underprivileged students turning their class average around from 1.9 to 4.45 in three years. Through the story, teachers and leaders will learn best practices, impactful motivational tactics, and ideas to build a transcendent culture that encourages high achievement in Advanced Placement.
