RICHLAND, Wash. – Registration is now live for the Washington State University Tri-Cities Education Summit that features a presentation and panel discussion by award-winning teacher and education advocate Erin Jones. The event is sponsored by STCU.
The summit will take place from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 12, and provides local educators and administrators with the opportunity to earn six clock hours and choose sessions of their choice in the following subject areas:
- STEM education
- English language learning
- Diversity and social justice
The cost is $15 for the day, which includes a light breakfast, full lunch and the sessions.
Jones is an award-winning educator who speaks to educators and schools across the country on how they can help individuals recognize their purpose and develop their strengths, in addition to helping organizations identify their gaps in service and determine ways to better meet the needs of those they serve. Jones travels nationally as she trains educators, students and non-profits in equitable and culturally responsive practices.
“We have a great schedule planned for teachers, principals and others in education that is geared toward student success, innovative teaching strategies, and generally, how to better reach students through educational techniques,” said Judy Morrison, WSU Tri-Cities academic director of education. “Erin is also an incredible speaker and has lots to share about how to better meet the needs of students.”
