2019 Refresher Course Keynote Speaker
We are excited to announce the keynote address for the 2019 Refresher Course & Workshops in New Orleans!
| Challenges and Opportunities: Why Poverty Matters and Why Schools Can Matter More
Tammy Pawloski, Ph.D.Life with limited resources can negatively impact achievement and life success, but the good news is that schools and teachers can matter more! The latest research from neuroscience provides direction for intentional school and teacher moves that can dramatically and positively shift the trajectory for all students. Learn how to reframe the challenges faced by teachers in high-poverty schools as opportunities for revealing the often-hidden potential of every learner every day.
Tammy Pawloski is Professor of Education and Director of the Center of Excellence to Prepare Teachers of Children of Poverty at Francis Marion University. She holds a Ph.D. from the University of South Carolina, and prior to joining the faculty of FMU in 2000, she served on the faculties of USC in South Carolina, and Ventura College and Pepperdine University in Southern California.
