Welcome Address by Dr. Mary Ann Dewan and Dr. Anisha Munshi

Our opening keynote speaker is Andratesha Fritzgerald. Andratesha Fritzgerald is committed to excellence in education. She has worked as a teacher, curriculum specialist, administrator, and director. As an international speaker, presenter, and facilitator, Fritzgerald exhibits an audacious perseverance that calls organizations to evolve into inclusive antiracist safe zones for all learners.
With a passion for Universal Design for Learning, Culturally Responsive Teaching, and Antiracism, she has led the charge to craft implementation plans, design lab templates, professional development symposia, and professional practice cadres. She models expert learning while equipping others to do the same. 
 She loves writing and has been published in What Really Works with Universal Design for Learning (Corwin Press) and on Think Inclusive’s blog about inclusion advocacy and educational resources. 

Her new book Antiracism and Universal Design for Learning: Building Expressways to Success, (CAST Professional Publishing) was released in September of  2020.  
Her life’s work is to awaken, celebrate and activate brilliance by breaking barriers and stereotypes of teachers, leaders, and students to actualize achievement wherever it seems impossible. A self-proclaimed book nerd, Jeopardy enthusiast, and imagination expert, she loves writing and dreaming out loud with her husband, two children, and committed educators who believe in academic success for all. She is the founder of Building Blocks of Brilliance Education Consulting Firm, established in 2018.
