Faculty Attend Multicultural Teaching Institute

July 1, 2022

A group of returning and new Belmont Day faculty members attended the annual 3-day Multicultural Teaching Institute (MTI) conference in June. MTI is a conference designed by educators for educators where participants learn hands-on teaching tools to enrich their classrooms while expanding their ability to critically evaluate their own multicultural teaching practices in their classrooms.

Fifth grade teacher Vaniecia Skinner writes of the experience that she and her colleagues “met some amazing people, got to know our fellow BDS colleagues even better, shared ideas, stretched ourselves and heard from two amazing keynote speakers, Afrika Afeni Mills and Liza Talusan. The experience was truly wonderful and impactful and we are energized to continue working on the ideas shared.”

The Belmont Day MTI contingent included Bill Hamilton, grade 6 science teacher, Nicole Siverls, pre-kindergarten teacher, Vaniecia Skinner, grade 5 teacher, Katie O’Brien, grade 2 teacher, Emily Crawford, grade 4 teacher, Geoffrey Fox, grade 1 teacher, Maggie Small, grade 7 science teacher, Kate Burns, grades 7 & 8 social studies teacher, Elisabeth Klock, grade 8 English teacher, and Brittany Ryan, grade 6 math teacher.
