Join us for a two-day arts and professional development institute designed to help Charlotte area educators build equitable classrooms.

Featuring Dena Simmons, nationally recognized TED® speaker and Assistant Director of Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, teachers will connect through rich and meaningful ways to expand their existing cultural proficiency. Participants will also collaborate to create teaching tools that foster culturally responsive classroom environments.

Joining Dr. Simmons as session leaders are Question Bridge: Black Males co-creator Chris Johnson; James E. Ford, North Carolina Teacher of the Year and educational consultant; Exhibiting Artist Alvin C. Jacobs, Jr.; and systems change facilitator Valda Valbrun.
