We are living in unprecedented times. As society shifts in perception, teachers can use drama and storytelling to help students to develop their own understanding of this changing world.
Ours will be an interactive, fast-paced, and entertaining session designed to provide teachers with creative tools to help students move beyond unconscious and conscious biases that are based on embedded assumptions and stereotypes in stories they encounter.
Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. - Maya Angelou

B.A., M. Ed.
Ragini has taught a variety of students and has consistently incorporated drama into her learning activities. Her inclusive approach to education, as well as her focus on learning vs. teaching led her to develop activities that incorporated the arts, movement, and technology. Her passion for writing, directing, and acting led her away from school administration into developing her screenwriting skills and becoming a stand-up comedian. She is living proof that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and that having a passion for learning in engaging and meaningful ways can lead you down a path never imagined.
