Becoming the Educator They Need: Strategies, Mindsets and Beliefs for Supporting Male Black and Latino Students

Black and Latino Males are the most misunderstood, suspended and expelled students in K-12 Schools in the U.S. It's important to understand the thought process of these young men in order to educate them more effectively. Many of these young men live in fear daily and it comes out in negative ways in their interactions at school. This interactive session will give strategies to teach educators and administrators how to become the educator these young men need including affirming them, speaking positive words, teaching them to control emotions, and how to turn hard skills into soft skills.

About the Authors

Robert Jackson began his teaching career with a no-nonsense but caring approach to education in Indianapolis public schools more than 20 years ago—after being cut from the NFL (Minnesota Vikings). He created a No More Excuses curriculum, which has been featured in publications nationally and is being used in K–12 schools, colleges, and universities.

Jackson is a sought-after expert on teaching cultural diversity, restorative practices, socioemotional learning, working with students who have experienced trauma, and educating Black and Latino males in the country. He has delivered keynote addresses and holds workshops for educators, administrators, parents, and students.

He is the author of five books and the 2019 Alpha Foundation National Motivational Educator of the Year.
