The title of this presentation is, “Breaking the Education Code.” I chose this title because it’s time for us to understand and acknowledge the need for diversity in education. We need to awaken to the changes that have to occur to best service our scholars. This presentation is comprised of some of the best practices and strategies that I’ve implemented as an instructional leader. Right now in education, we are in the Kairos moment. It’s time for us to understand the need for diversity in education and how our curriculum should reflect the different styles of learning that happens in our classrooms. Ideally, our first step is to embrace the diversity that is occurring in various forms in America. I believe that public education is the cornerstone of democracy and if we create a learning environment that reflects the belief that all scholars can learn and be successful, then we will truly give scholars the opportunity to become college-and career-ready.

This presentation is comprised of some of the best practices and strategies that I’ve implemented as an instructional leader. I will facilitate a collaborative conversation around scholar engagement, equity vs. equality, and Tailored Instruction. The audience will leave with strategies around closing the achievement gap in education.
