Please join us for the following workshops in March:
- Athletics vs Academics: Bridging the Gap between Teachers Who Love School and Students Who Love Sports, with Joseph Mathews, Wednesday, 3/30, 6-7:30pm
Building on Joseph Mathew's experience as a student athlete, pro athlete, coach, and educator, this workshop aims to provide teachers and youth workers with practical strategies to engage disengaged students who love sports. Through interactive discourse, Joseph will share how sports saved his life, inspired him to love learning, and shed light on how understanding sports culture can enhance student achievement.
Joseph Mathews has conducted many professional development workshops for teachers that focus on student and family engagement. In addition to his newly published Things I Wish My Teacher Knew About Me (CreateSpace, May, 2015), he has written Wrestling for My Life (2011), Why Do Boys Make Girls Cry? (2011), Me and My Homies (2010), and The Dropout (2008). Joseph has a M.A. in Family and Community Education, and he is pursuing now a Ph.D in Interdisciplinary Studies, also at Teachers College, Columbia University.
