Inclusivity in EE
Dr. Centåe Richards specializes in the resolution of social issues of inclusion and diversity that often materialize in education spaces. He has previously worked with K-12 students, staff, teachers, principals, coordinators, operations managers, human resource specialists, district directors, school district office officials, and board members. Dr. Richards currently looks for ways that adolescents use their ethnic and cultural identities in educational settings to create spaces of agency and alternative forms of learning that can inform and guide more traditional forms of curriculum in the classroom.

Saturday Field Trip Descriptions
We are excited to host engaging field trip options included as a fundamental part of the conference. These field trip opportunities will provide hands-on learning, networking, and an introduction to some of the best environmental education locations around the Prescott area. Field trips will last approximately 3 hours (2 pm – 5 pm), including transportation time. Options include STEM education, natural history, outdoor adventure, sustainability, school gardens, animal sanctuaries, hiking, nature walks, and more. AAEE will do its best to accommodate attendees’ first choice selections, but some of the field trips will have limited space available.
