Presenter: Kirstie DeBiase is the California Regional Dean of Education for Charter College. In her roles as a Campus Dean and now as a Regional Dean she has presented to teachers on regional as well as national levels and is recognized for her expertise on the topics of classroom management, teaching modalities, differentiation of instruction and Bridges out of Poverty. Her professional focus is working with teachers and administrators to improve student achievement and retention. Kirstie conducts highly motivational and interactive workshops that give instructors hands-on opportunities to improve their instruction and results through effective teaching strategies.

Presentation: There are three key things that help one move out of poverty: education, relationships, and employment. Money helps you get past survival mode and allows you time to devote to learning. Students who are under-resourced, though, face tremendous obstacles as they begin their postsecondary education work. Based on the book, “Bridges Out of Poverty” by Ruby Payne, Ph.D., this workshop provides an understanding of under-resourced students, as well as effective student engagement and teaching strategies to improve instruction for adult learners from all economic classes.
