The term "student-centered" learning refers to a wide variety of educational experiences, instructional approaches, and academic-support strategies that are intended to address the distinct learning needs of diverse student populations. To accomplish this goal, schools, teachers, guidance counselors, and other educational specialists may employ a wide variety of educational methods, from modifying assignments and instructional strategies in the classroom to entirely redesigning the ways in which students are grouped and taught in a school.
Pepi M. Silverman, Educator, Administrator, University Professor, and Educational Advocate has dedicated her life to supporting the rights of ALL children. She has sat on all sides of the conference table, understands all of the roles and each participant’s responsibilities, and brings that understanding to her work as an advocate. Having worked in public schools for the last 25 years, she understands the system, knows the language, and can help to facilitate the conversations necessary to achieve positive outcomes for students.
Pepi founded Bridge Educational Advocacy to extend herself and her knowledge and experience to support families needing assistance in order to work effectively with their school districts. To learn more about Bridge Educational Advocacy, check out the website at www.beadvocacy.com
