Developing Culturally Responsive Educators

Event Date: May 09, 2023 – 3:00 PM EDT – May 09, 2023 – 4:00 PM EDT

Join to learn about how one school took culturally responsive education for Native American students to the next level.

Culturally responsive education begins with teacher and leader preparation and continues with ongoing training and development. However, many educators are not supported by culturally responsive evaluation systems.

This webinar will highlight an educator evaluation system for the Santa Fe Indian School, specifically aligned to the context of the New Mexico tribes and pueblos served by the school, developed by educators at the school and Regional Educational Laboratory (REL) Southwest. REL Southwest’s Janice Keizer and Santa Fe Indian School’s Dr. Anya Dozier Enos (Santa Clara Pueblo) will discuss the motivation for and development of the evaluation system, including key considerations and a roadmap of the major steps of the project.

The event also will feature a panel with Dr. Glenabah Martinez (Taos Pueblo/Diné), director of the Institute for American Indian Education at the University of New Mexico; Dr. Timothy Begaye (Diné), education program specialist at the Bureau of Indian Education; and Dr. Mark Ericson, Santa Fe Indian School’s high school community-based education teacher and member of the evaluation system’s design team. The panelists will discuss preparing preservice teachers for culturally responsive teaching, the importance of ongoing professional development for educators, and implementing the culturally responsive educator growth and evaluation system.
