Dr. Vagle is author of over 50 books, articles, book chapters, blogs, interviews, and invited lectures about powerful teaching philosophies and practices. His most current research examines the profound influence social class has on the ways in which teachers and students perceive (and engage with) one another and how particular social class-sensitive pedagogies can be enacted in classrooms.

CLASSroom Project Co-Facilitators

This workshop is led by Dr. Mark Vagle and project associates Tracy M. Leitl and Kelly Gast.

Tracy M. Leitl is a phD student in the department of Curriculum and Instruction, Elementary Education, at the University of Minnesota. Prior to pursuing her phD at the University of Minnesota, Tracy taught kindergarten, second and third grade in New York City. Her teaching and working experiences in New York City led her to question broader socio political and economic structures and hierarchies' impact on our educational landscape and the lived experiences of students, parents, and educators. Tracy aspires to provide and foment in aspiring teachers the knowledge, pedagogical tools, mindful reflective dispositions, and experiences they will need to be skilled, committed, and confident life-long learners and teachers. She wishes to contribute to the field of education in a way that supports and inspires others to become invested and proactive agents in supporting all children to live in a society full of meaningful opportunity. Her work at the University of Minnesota includes teaching and leading pre-service elementary education teachers. She is an associate member of The CLASSroom Project, which is dedicated to examining the effects of social class in educational contexts.

Kelly Gast is a doctoral student in Elementary Education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Minnesota. She is a former ESL teacher who has worked with students and teachers in the United States and abroad. Her work with the university has included teaching and mentoring pre-service teachers as they develop a reflexive practice, supporting programs for alternative pathways towards teaching licensure, and supporting the CLASSroom Project as a project associate. Her research interests include the role of contemplative practices in teacher identity formation towards equity-mindedness.

Organizer

The CLASSroom Project, College of Education and Human Development

The CLASSroom Project centers on what the co-directors have termed social class-sensitive pedagogies, designed to meet the needs of working class and poor students and their families as they navigate schools steeped in middle-classed assumptions of normality.

The College of Education and Human Development is a world leader in discovering, creating, sharing, and applying principles and practices of multiculturalism and multidisciplinary scholarship to advance teaching and learning and to enhance the psychological, physical, and social development of children, youth, and adults across the lifespan in families, organizations, and communities.
