Fairmont School District 89 Superintendent Sonya Whitaker, Ed.D., will give the keynote address, “Creating a Culture of Achievement during the Era of Common Core Standards.”

Educators have been under pressure to produce results more than ever before in the history of public education. At the same time, demographic shifts are bringing a more diverse student population to schools. Educators are striving to respond, but many lack the cultural proficiency needed to address the needs of a diverse student population (Nelson and Guerra, 2007).

During Whitaker’s inspiring keynote presentation, educators and administrators will develop the cultural proficiencies needed to dramatically improve student achievement.  She will provide participants with practical instruction and assessment strategies that will help teachers increase the achievement levels of all their students, especially those from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

Additional speakers will focus on topics in reading and writing with practical suggestions for the classroom teachers.  Some of these topics include technology, bilingual literature, and Common Core State Standards. There also will be an opportunity to visit with Whitaker for a book signing at the end of the conference.

This event is cosponsored by SXU’s School of Education and the Illinois Reading Council Region Region 5 (Will, Two Rivers, and South Suburban Reading Councils.
