Jennifer will join colleague Dave Mochel for the Annual Department Chairs Conference at Mohonk Mountain House in New Paltz, New York. This three day program focuses on the role and many responsibilities of the department chair. We will explore all aspects of the job, along with the essential skills and capacities it takes to lead from the middle. Running effective meetings, engaging in difficult conversations, giving useful feedback, managing your own authority.
Jennifer will be in Philadelphia presenting at the NAIS Annual Conference. Get up early on Friday, February 28 for her 8:00-9:00 AM concurrent session: Navigating Gender and Sexuality in PreK-12
Students naturally explore a range of identities, expressions, and roles as they navigate the social and academic world in PreK-12. This session provides (1) a conceptual model for understanding biological sex, gender, and sexuality and (2) contemporary terminology for exploring these essential parts of human identity. You will be invited to generate questions related to the Why? What? Who? When? and How? of engaging with these issues. Bring humility, curiosity, and a sense of humor!
