Learning & The Brain

The Richmond School District and the Richmond District Parents Association, in collaboration with the City of Richmond and S.U.C.C.E.S.S. present the 18thannual LEARNING & the BRAIN Conference 2017.  This FREE conference takes place Saturday, April 1, 2017 at A.R. MacNeill Secondary.

We invite you to come celebrate Richmond’s diversity by uncovering what inclusion means in our schools with our Keynote speaker:  Shelley Moore. Shelley is a PhD student, a Richmond teacher, and a consultant working with schools to support the learning and success for all students.  Her work explores the benefits of learning in diverse contexts and embraces the strengths that every student can bring to their classroom community.  Shelley is also the author of the recently published book, One Without the Other: Stories of unity through diversity and inclusion.  

After Shelley's keynote, you can attend one of our informative break-out sessions where educators and community leaders will help you better understand the children and youth in our lives and how we can best support them.
