CAMLE is proud to announce Roberto Rivera as the keynote speaker of this year's Schools-to-Watch conference. Roberto Rivera is the Chief Empowerment Officer for "7 Mindsets", a Social Emotional Learning program that elevates student achievement, student behavior, grit and resilience. Roberto served as a research fellow with the Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Research Group at the University of Illinois at Chicago, specializing in the relationship of youth voice to social and emotional learning. As a Research Collaborator for CASEL, he studied the intersection of SEL, culturally relevant pedagogy, and youth voice. As a teen, Roberto was labeled an “at-risk” and “disadvantaged” student with learning disabilities. As an adult, he overcame these labels and completed his college degree at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, where he created his own major entitled “Social Change, Youth Culture and the Arts.”
Roberto will unpack the 7 Mindsets for maximum impact:
