MESA Welcomes Ms. Zaretta Hammond...

as part of the Abriendo Caminos/Opening Pathways for Students of Color into Teaching grant project.

Please join us to hear Ms. Hammond discuss her book as well as her framework for Culturally Responsive Teaching: Ready4Rigor.

Ms. Hammond is a national education consultant and author of Culturally Responsive Teaching and the Brain: Promoting Authentic Engagement and Rigor for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students.

Ms. Hammond focuses on making culturally responsive pedagogy understandable and practical for educators. She uses the lens of neuroscience to help teachers see the interaction between student relationships, academic mindset, and processing content that leads to higher achievement for diverse students.

She is a former writing teacher and has been consulting with school districts and non-profit organizations around issues of equity, literacy, and culturally responsive teaching for the past 20 years.

This event is made possible through funding by the Nevada Department of Education's Great Teaching and Leading Fund. The principal investigator on the project is Dr. Norma A. Marrun.

Please note: Ms. Hammond will be speaking again on Saturday, February 10, 2018. For more information about that event, please visit or e-mail:
