About

Our conference theme this year is ‘ U Kin Count On Us’ as we celebrate our 25th Anniversary we want to dedicate our appreciation to our elders who laid the pathway from the Segregated School System.


We will have a dedicated drum session once again here for one of our fallen Black Educators.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Dr. Michael Eric Dyson. This innovative and dynamic speaker will enhance this year’s theme ‘by incorporating those cultural competencies that are elders (black teachers of the segregated system) imparted the strength of the black community in the Diaspora through the teachings by you using Africentric principles of learning. This led to the quality of teaching that our children not only appreciated but still yearn for an integrated system and 2019.

Dr. Marcus Jackson innovative school Principal will authentic his practice through his “Five P’s of School Improvement: Who’s Responsible for Success?” A turn-around is a quick, dramatic, sustained change in direction. In the performance of an organization, a turn-around can be viewed in the same way. It is a necessary change in direction to avoid obstacles that would impede progress. Recently, some larger school systems have incorporated the concept of turnaround leaders, coaches, and other educational specialists. These individuals are charged with turning around low-performing schools—by any means necessary.

Ms. Rachel Ross-Mantley our Second Speaker for the afternoon will help revisit our Culturally Relevant Pedagogical journey by emphasising the Cultural Collisions and Bias that often impede the success and progress of our Black Learners in the Nova Scotia Public School System. Ms. Ross Mantley through passion for teaching black leaners will foster inclusive approaches to help mainstream educators develop skills to be empathetic about codification, cultural collisions and demonstrating where Black Learners can see themselves in classroom, curriculum , school and system.
