5th Black Male Educators Convening

Posted by The Fellowship on October 10, 2016

The Fellowship is proud to announce the 5th Black Male Educators Convening (BMEC) on Saturday, October 15th at 9:30 am at Universal Audenried high school – 3301 Tasker St., Philadelphia, PA featuring national researcher, Travis Bristol, Activist DeRay McKesson and other guests. This kick off convening brings together Black men in public schools to amplify voice, advocate with policy makers on Black men issues in schools and provide professional development and leadership opportunities for Black male educators. Philadelphia Superintendent, Dr. Hite recently made a call for an increased focus on recruiting minority teachers. Now, The Fellowship will officially launch a city wide Black male teacher pipeline model and school programs to prepare all students (especially Black male students) to see teaching as a career in activism, social justice and community leadership.

BMEC attendees will hear from national speakers, panelist, breakout sessions and group discussions on:

  • Data Driven Classrooms
  • Culturally Competent Literacy Instruction
  • Effective Classroom Based Routine and Procedures
  • Why I Teach: A panel for future teachers
  • Non profit programming to support classroom instruction
  • Managing Adults: For school leaders and managers

Other sessions include:

  • Strategies that work for recruitment and retention
  • What to do when I’m the only one
  • I’m more than just a disciplinarian
  • Leading in a turn-around environment

There will be a special closed door session for new member interests who would like to apply to join The Fellowship.

*Lunch will be provided
