PD WEBINAR SERIES, September 21, 2021, 6:00 pm CT
Keep the Mind InSight
A brain is just like a fingerprint; no two are the same. However, the differences in brain structure and the changes in the brain during adolescence provide insight into the beautiful and challenging mind of a gifted adolescent. This session will help teachers keep neuroscience in mind as they plan instruction and learn how to understand, engage, challenge, and support their gifted students.
Sherri Spears lives in Chelsea, AL with her husband, Daryl, and her 4 children. She has spent 20 years as an educator teaching middle and high school students. In 2013 she accepted the Gifted Education Lead Teacher position for Shelby County Schools which has allowed her to pursue research and professional learning in educational neuroscience, adolescent brain development, trauma informed teaching, ADHD, executive function disorder, Dyslexia, and gifted education. Her hope is that by equipping adults with a scientific understanding of the nature and needs of adolescents, classrooms and families will be transformed and positive support systems will be created in the lives of the adolescents who need trustworthy, safe adults to guide them.
