I have posted the following information here at the request of several teachers who attended last year's conference. Please take a look and think about attending the conference or presenting. The link for this information is below.


We are excited to be offering our 2nd annual Teaching and Working in a
Diverse World conference this fall at UMF.

On Thursday October 22nd, 2009we will be hosting another half day conference, this year with a special focus on the impact of poverty in schools, families and communities.

The conference will begin at 11:45 with a Keynote address by Dr. Elyse Pratt-Ronco, counselor with Upward Bound. After this address there will be a series of 50 minute sessions by faculty, students and community members. There is no registration for the conference and people are free to attend one or multiple sessions. The conference is free and open to the public.

We are looking for more presenters. You will find the session proposal
attached to this email and it is available at:
