As posed by Nigerian Author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, these single stories lead to stereotypes that while not necessarily wholly untrue, are certainly incomplete.

In this keynote, Jennie Magiera will share untold stories we can amplify in order to empower educators to change the world, starting in their our classrooms.
