This workshop will highlight teaching strategies used to empower children to be confident in exploring and being proud of their many identities.  Join us as we learn how a name is only the beginning!  Expect to leave this session with an increased critical consciousness and greater ability to model and teach key ideas for social justice.  The presenter is a diversity consultant, as well as the author of the children's book, Teach Us Your Name. Her book was created to give children the confidence to teach others the correct pronunciation of their names, as well as to show pride in their many identities.   You won't want to miss this meaningful and timely session!

Book signing immediately following session.
