This workshop is open to Rochester City School District and Rochester charter school teachers that will be focused on GESA’s research based models to eliminate areas of learning disparity related to race, gender, socioeconomics class, and perceived ability. The program will take place July 18 – 20 from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. at Nazareth College.  For more information, contact Jackie Bryant, director of TLQP at, (585) 389-2684.

GESA is a research based model that uses peer teams and observation protocols to support educators at all levels in recognizing and changing specific teaching behaviors in ways that support equity and address the student achievement gap. Teachers who successfully complete the three day institute will be certified to provide GESA overviews and to conduct workshops on GESA areas of disparity.

This program will be presented by the nationally acclaimed GESA founder, Dolores Grayson.
