Saturday, November 19, 2022

11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.


Free and open to the public 

This seminar will host our first speaker of the series, educator Mario Benarbe. Mario is a mentee of HipHop Ed founder Chris Edmin, mathematics decolonizer, and Montessori education leader from the Bronx, NY. He is currently in his 3rd year leading a Montessori led Community Based Charter School and works to ‘develop the whole child’ from his local community by bringing the community into his classroom and his classroom into the community. Learners will have the opportunity to learn about and from these practices, as well as collaborate to come up with their own ideas on how to connect learning in the classroom to students' local communities.
