This session is available for 1.5 CEU hours, or may be paired with the other sessions for one grad credit (pending) through USF. After growing up in generational migrant-labor poverty, leaving school at 15 to get married, having two children, and continuing to cope with poverty while being essentially homeless her entire life, Donna Beegle found herself—at 25—with no husband, little education, and limited job skills. Then, in 10 short years, she went from GED to a Doctorate in Educational Leadership. She will share her unique insights from having grown up in generational poverty in America and of studying poverty for more than 30 years to help you enhance your knowledge of poverty and develop the understanding to impact the students with whom you work. Learning Objectives • Enhance your knowledge of poverty and the barriers it presents • Develop an understanding of how to impact the individuals with whom you work • Gain tools and strategies for individual and organizational actions that have proven to improve outcomes

  • This class runs from 11-12:30 CST/10-11:30 MT *This is the second of 10 sessions. For those who attended the poverty conference in February, 2021, this is a repeat session. This session is available for 1.5 CEU hours, or may be paired with the other sessions for one grad credit (pending) through USF. In this interactive session, Dr. Beegle provides five keys to how we develop our worldview and fall into labeling. Labels are so pervasive, we often do not know that we have categorized someone. Labels blind us to seeing and hearing the perspectives and experiences of others and reduce productivity. Dr. Beegle will assist participants in better understanding their own attitudes, beliefs and values about poverty, race, and equity. Bias resides mostly in our subconscious minds. Without being conscious, we often say or do things that cause unintentional harm. This interactive session allows participants to be conscious of stereotypes, myths, and judgments. She will also share case studies of school districts and colleges who have gained poverty competencies and increased success using her evidence-based best practices. Learning Objectives • Discuss the five biggest stereotypes that get in the way of education success • Understand how our own attitudes and beliefs can get in the way of improving outcomes • Describe three proven practices for building more inclusive, responsive environments for students in the crisis of poverty

This session is available for 1.5 CEU hours, or may be paired with the other sessions for one grad credit (pending) through USF. The pandemic has illuminated inequities in our systems and driven more students and families into poverty. This module offers insights into the different ways Covid-19 is impacting students in generational, working-class, immigrant, and situational poverty. Covid-19 has also illuminated the racism embedded in our society. Dr. Beegle will share tools that increase our abilities to address the added impacts of the virus on communication, relationships, and education. She will provide concrete strategies for reaching and teaching students living in the crisis of poverty—both virtually and in person. Learning Objectives • Explain how the pandemic has increased poverty and what each of us can do to assist students and families • Share how the many types of poverty require different approaches to set students up for success • Develop measurable actions for breaking poverty and pandemic barriers to education
