Education Roundtable Talks

Education Roundtable Talks are a platform for teachers to learn, collaborate, discuss, reflect, and grow. Guest speakers will create dialogue and facilitate thought-provoking discussion around salient educational topics that matter to teachers. These talks are intended to create a safe and nurturing space for teachers to engage with their peers.

Guest speakers for the 2022 – 2023 school year included Dr. Jennifer Jaso (2022 Sarasota County Teacher of the Year and Florida Teacher of the Year top-five finalist); Sarah Painter (2022 Florida Teacher of the Year); Keith MacPherson (motivational speaker); and Dr. Mitch Ruzek and Dr. Dana Zeidler, (science professors at the University of South Florida).

These talks take place at the Education Foundation of Sarasota County’s LaunchPad4U location at 1413 Blvd. of the Arts in Sarasota. Teachers who attend these talks receive a $50 stipend, and one lucky teacher will win a $250 mini grant.
