Tuesday August 4th, 2020 Summit Schedule

When: Aug 4, 2020 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

Topic: Jeremy Anderson Keynote Presentation

Presenter: Jeremy Anderson

Jeremy believes that teachers today are the real heroes, yet many times they’re overworked and underpaid. This at times may cause teachers to unintentionally fall short. Because of his past, he can be a valuable asset for your staff while showing them how to connect with some of their most challenging students. In today’s culture and climate, educators must get the training and systems in place that will help them connect and relate to their students in more effective and relevant ways. Students enter the classroom with a wide array of cultural and racial prejudices that they often adopt from their communities, pop culture, and their families. Jeremy’s training helps to celebrate diversity, equality, and inclusion within the school which helps to cultivate harmony within the classroom.
