Author: JaDonnia B.
An education counseling professional, I focus my expertise on diversity and family engagement/empowerment Of particular importance is the partnerships between parents and the community schools that serve their children. Highlighting strategies, tips an evidence-based best practices for family engagement, my aim is to alter mindsets, broaden perspectives, enhance empathic awareness, and build capacity. I offer 'food for thought' and invite discussion by telling truths never before explored-to both educators and families. A holistic culturally-responsive approach to teaching, learning and engaging others begins with respect. I promote respect and fully integrating curricular diversity in formal learning institutions!! The respectful engagement and collaboration with families is necessary, because parents hold the master key that unlocks doors to child health and wellness, academic achievement, teacher excellence and stronger school communities.
