Dr. Keitha-Gail Martin-Kerr visits Jamaica as part of JET program

Dr. Keitha-Gail Martin-Kerr, Curriculum and Instruction faculty member, co-led the JET (Jamaican Exchange in Teaching) Program this summer, increasing the number of Jamaican educators participating in the fully funded week-long immersive experience. The educators spent three days at Global Arts Plus and two days observing at Southside Family Charter School, Global Academy, Zanewood Community, and the Child Development Lab School. Dr. Nathaniel Stewart, OLPD professor, presented his research to the educators. Next year, JET will partner with Global Academy and take five educators to Jamaica for a similar experience.
