AUS Alumna Kristin Leong Coming Here as “Classrooms in Color” Panelist
AUS MAEd alumna Kristin Leong is coming to campus on Wednesday, March 14, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. as a panelist for a Town Hall Seattle event!
This panel, “Classrooms in Color: An #EducationSoWhite Workshop,” is part of Town Hall Seattle’s larger #EducationSoWhite event series. These events bring together “dynamic education leaders” to “examine the impact of the culture gaps in our schools separating students and teachers.” While the primary #EducationSoWhite event will take place at Seattle University, the “Classrooms in Color” panel is taking place at Antioch University Seattle.
“Classrooms in Color” features Leong and her fellow TED-Ed Innovator Marcos Silva, for “an interactive conversation about identity and our schools.” Leong and Silva will give audience members “a behind-the-scenes look into how they brought their groundbreaking Innovation Projects to life.” Tickets are just $5 and they include admission to both this and the subsequent #EducationSoWhite event at Seattle University.
From her Town Hall Seattle bio: “Kristin is a 2018 Citizen University Fellow and is one of 30 international TED-Ed Innovative Educators of 2017. She is the founder of RollCallProject.com, which is an international project humanizing the gaps in race, gender, and sexual orientation separating students and teachers. Kristin is a former middle school teacher and three-term Washington State Teacher Leader.” Read more at http://www.kristinleong.com/
