14th Annual Back-to-School Workshop

 

8 a.m.-noon Aug. 17

Speaker: Dorina Sackman-Ebuwa

 

 

Ms. Dorina Sackman-Ebuwa is known as "The Lab Coat Teacher" and, affectionately, “Miss Dorito” by her students from around the globe.

 

With her unique teaching style, Ms. Sackman-Ebuwa has spent the past 23 years empowering students of diverse backgrounds at the K-12, college, and adult learner level. An expert in building solid relationships that result in successful learning experiences for students and teachers, Ms. Sackman-Ebuwa strongly believes culturally relevant teaching, connection to community and EI over IQ make up the true learning experience. A nationally recognized educator and recipient of the Florida Teacher of the Year Award, she takes her ELL classroom experiences, collaborative teacher workshops, and doctoral research on transformative emotional intelligence and travels the globe as a “teacher on loan” inspiring, motivating, and empowering teachers and the teaching profession.

 

From innovative, personalized professional development filled with successful and differentiated strategies to authentic “real talk” about teachers leading, Ms. Sackman-Ebuwa encourages all educators to B.E.L.I.E.V.E.!® - Be the Educators who Lead to Inspire and Empower Via Empathy!

 

When not wearing the many hats of an educator, she dons a Stetson and works on her ranch, tending to her beloved rescue and special needs cows, goats, horses, chickens, miniature ponies, Sicilian mini donkeys, and barn cat, “Sits with Eggs.”
