Breakout Presentation

The Connection Between Building Meaningful Relationships and Student Achievement

Dr. Nancy Dome has been supporting children and developing educators for over 20 years. She started her career as a childcare worker, supporting those students most at risk. Later, realizing the education track would allow her greater flexibility and reach than the social services track, she went back to school to become a teacher. From there she spent 10 years working in multiple capacities, ranging from classroom teacher, mentor teacher, and teacher on special assignment in the Juvenile Court and Community Schools in San Diego. These roles allowed her to train and support teachers in becoming more culturally competent educators for the diverse population they served.
