Going to the National Association of Independent Schools' People of Color Conference (POCC) this week? Catch a session with SEED leaders, attend the book signing for the new Diversity Work in Independent Schools (which includes a contribution about SEED), or just be on the lookout for SEED leaders so you can chat or say hi.
Going to the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Convention this week in Boston? Please come to the Friday afternoon (D.51) session on "Democratically Inclusive Classroom Strategies" led by SEED Founder and Senior Associate Peggy McIntosh, Co-director Emily Style, SEED Summer Staff Members Donald Burroughs and Dan Cohen, and SEED Leader Diane Waff.
I want to express my appreciation for the opportunity to represent SEED at the 2013 National Association for Multicultural Education (NAME) Conference held in Oakland, California, November 6 to 10, 2013. It was an important chance to not just promote SEED and the summer New Leadersâ Week, but to also meet so many educators from around the country, pre-K through graduate schools, committed to restoring education to its proper place as merging one's thirst for knowledge with the ability to teach as well as learn.
