TCEA announces five new presenters for TCEA Convention & Exposition 2020

Michael Bonner taught at South Greenville Elementary in North Carolina, a 100% free and reduced lunch campus, before moving to the Ron Clark Academy in 2019. His creative teaching caught the attention of Ellen DeGeneres, who gave Bonner and his students gear to make their own educational music videos — and helped them make one alongside Ellen, Big Sean, Ice Cube, Migos, Ty Dolla Sign, and Lin Manuel Miranda. Bonner’s energetic teaching style puts an emphasis on social and personal needs and challenges and opportunities for learning.

Michael Cohen also known as The Tech Rabbi, is an educator and creativity expert with a  mission to help educators unleash their own creative abilities to empower students through design thinking and entrepreneurship. When he isn’t traveling the world sharing his message, he is the director of innovation for Yeshiva University of Los Angeles Boys School (YULA), where he oversees the Schlesinger STEAM and Entrepreneurship Center.

Principal Baruti Kafele is an award-winning former principal, master teacher, and a transformational school leader. With more than 1,000 conferences, presentations, and seminars since 2011, Principal Kafele is a leading authority in effective classroom and school leadership strategies. He has authored 10 books, including his five ASCD best sellers, and is the recipient of over 100 educational, professional, and community awards.

Catlin Tucker is an educator, trainer, author, and Google Certified Innovator who earned the 2010 Teacher of the Year award in Sonoma County, California. An expert on blended learning and the station rotation model, you won’t want to miss out on the insights that have made Catlin a best-selling writer and respected educator.
