MVNU holds free Diversity Seminar in Education
March 14, 2011
MOUNT VERNON, Ohio -- Mount Vernon Nazarene University will host a Diversity Seminar in Education on Monday, March 14, from 6-8 p.m. in the R.R. Hodges Chapel/Auditorium. The topic will be “Being a Master Teacher in a Diverse Classroom.”
This is a free event and no registration is required.
The guest speaker for the evening will be Dr. Kaye Manson Jeter, director of the Institute of Urban Education at Central State University in Wilberforce, Ohio. Prior to her current appointment, she served as the dean of the College of Education. Jeter holds doctorate degrees in both law and education and has more than 40 years of professional experience. In her role as dean, she reformed the teacher education program so that more minorities could become certified by passing the required national test. She developed and implemented the “Know More Learning System,” using a holistic approach to passing standardized tests.
From 1996-2002, Jeter served as general counsel for the Tennessee Department of Education, providing statewide leadership to schools and districts in all matters of law, developing comprehensive programs in student discipline and sexual harassment, while making numerous education law presentations around the state. Her previous assignment was as the director of Teacher Certification for Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee. Earlier, she served as the director of elementary education for the Benton Harbor (Mich.) Public Schools for five years and as an administrator, counselor and teacher for Pontiac, Michigan, public schools for 10 years. She has released the first two books in her “Legacy to Life” series: “Teacher, Teacher, What Does Your Garden Grow?” and “A Master Teacher Is.”
