Connections Count: Reaching the Hearts of Our Children through Conscious Discipline – All-Community Presentation

October 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Kennedy Award Winning Teacher Donna Porter and her former student DJ Batiste are the featured guests of our fall event! Please plan to attend!

Donna Porter is a Kennedy Award winning teacher and DJ Batiste is her former student. DJ was in a gang and had been repeatedly expelled from school beginning at age four and continuing through his senior year when he entered Mrs. Porter’s English class. His life was changed when this teacher chose to see beyond his behavior to nurture his amazing potential. Donna and DJ have a unique perspective to share on why traditional models of discipline are not effective for our at-risk students.
