  • Your Brain Has Power – Session 1 (of 3)
    4:30 pm-6:30 pm
    April 6, 2022

    Speaker: Jackeline Vasquez, M.Ed.

    The brain as we know it is a complex organ that gives us the ability to talk, walk, eat, and sleep. All these are very important to live, but what if there was more we could learn about the brain? More to understand on how to regulate our own emotions to then teach to our students and children.

    Join me in the first of there sessions as we discover the biology behind the emotional power of the brain.

  • Critical Conversations – We Need to Talk: The What, Why, & How of Critical Conversations (Students)
    9:00 am-11:00 am
    April 12, 2022

    Flyer: Wrenn_Student_Flyer_4-12-22

    Join me for an interactive workshop where you will learn the what, why, and how for engaging in and facilitating critical conversations about race, identity, socio-economic status and other topics we all encounter in our classrooms and daily interactions. Using a framework originated by Glenn Singleton (2015), and informed by scholars in education and social sciences, we will explore concepts of how traditions such as color blindness (Bonilla-Silva, 2014), color muteness (Pollock, 2004) perfection, power, and maintaining the status quo have limited our abilities to acknowledge and discuss important issues, ultimately sowing division and conflict. Throughout the presentation, participants will practice critical conversations with one another in pairs and small groups.

    Take these skills into your classrooms, organizations, and daily life. Be open to creating space for courageous conversations; be ready to learn about people whose lived experiences and ways of knowing and being may differ from your own.
