              KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

 

  

Dr. Joyce Brooks' life and education parallels major educational equity changes in America. She was a baby boomer born after WWII and raised in a racially segregated school in rural Arkansas. Dr. Brooks was in the 2nd grade when the Brown versus the Board of Education decision was published and because of this, her school received indoor restrooms and more classrooms.

After the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, Dr. Brooks was able to go to the city’s public library for the first time. Upon graduation from college in 1968, she taught high school English at a voluntary desegregated Arkansas rural high school.

Dr. Brooks has been a High school English teacher in Indiana and California, a
College instructor for Women’s studies in California, and the UniServ director for California Teachers Association.

Retirement did not curtail Dr. Brooks work in education. She was a school board member for six years in a rural Arkansas district, currently serves as the Education Chairperson for Denver NAACP and Colorado NAACP, is a board member for Great Education Colorado, and Co-chair of Coloradans for the Common Good.

 


 

 

Todd Bittner, disabled from birth, has a clear understanding of overcoming obstacles and has learned firsthand the importance of “meeting someone where they are.” Todd competed in able-bodied sports throughout his school career, including as a men's gymnastic still-rings specialist in a Division II NCAA college.

Todd was a corporate executive before the age of 26 and continued to grow as a professional. During his corporate years, he yearned to have a more significant impact on society. Realizing he could use his athletic talents to represent not only the disabled population but our country, he set a goal to become a member of the United States Disabled Ski, which he accomplished in less than two years. Although injuries prevented Todd from successfully competing in the Nagano or Lilyhammer Winter Olympics, he was not deterred from pushing harder every day to be better than the day before.

Todd channeled his own experiences and challenges into helping others. He has proven strengths in team building, staff engagement, and culture development and has a track record of leading schools to exceed their goals. He is a confident, compassionate, motivational leader that believes in meeting people where they are, which helps them to succeed beyond their perceived limitations.

He is constantly committed to giving back to society. He believes in kindness, accountability, generosity, and self-awareness and instills these values in the teams he leads.

Todd has spent his last 20 years as an educator here in the State of Colorado. He has worked in Grand County, Federal Heights, and is currently the Superintendent at the Norwood Public Schools.
