More information and event registration is available here.
Ms. Hammond focuses on making culturally responsive pedagogy understandable and practical for educators. She uses the lens of neuroscience to help teachers see the interaction between student relationships, academic mindset, and processing content that leads to higher achievement for diverse students.
She is a former writing teacher and has been consulting with school districts and non-profit organizations around issues of equity, literacy, and culturally responsive teaching for the past 20 years.
This event is made possible through funding by the Nevada Department of Education’s Great Teaching and Leading Fund. The principal investigator on the project is Dr. Norma A. Marrun.
