Educating Students Who Live in the Crisis of Poverty
Dr. Donna M. Beegle brings an insider perspective of being born into generations of migrant-labor poverty, dropping out of school at age 15 to marry, as well as a doctorate in Educational Leadership. She has researched and worked for 30 years with educators in all 50 states to improve education outcomes. This set of ten interactive trainings are designed to provide the foundation for understanding poverty along with practical, usable tools that allow for immediate action and a model to plan for next steps in your district. Dr. Beegle engages the audience with activities and breakout discussions to allow for a deeper dive into how we can make a difference for students and families who live in the crisis of poverty.
SDEA is proud to partner with Kentucky Education Association, Nebraska State Education Association, and Delaware Education Association to bring these trainings to you. (Note: If you attended the virtual poverty conference in February, 2021, four of the 10 sessions are a repeat of those sessions.)
This course is available for CEU hours (15 hours) or one graduate credit is pending through the University of Sioux Falls, for which there will be a separate registration link and fee as soon as the credit link is released.
REGISTRATION NOTE: This course has ten separate sessions. To receive the full graduate credit you must attend all 10 sessions. If you are NOT seeking graduate credit, you may choose the sessions you wish to attend.
