Kewanta Brooks is a classroom teacher, teacher trainer, classroom management and differentiated instruction specialist. She is an author, public speaker, and philanthropist. Kewanta’s new book, What Willy Wonka Taught Me About Parental Involvement: Tips to Become a Highly Effective and Engaging K-12 Educator is written for educators who feel lost, and are looking for applicationbased strategies they can implement right away; and for experienced educators who are looking to receive a refresher course on how to engage this new generation of students. Kewanta has been coaching, training, and working with educators across the country. She began her K-12 career as a self-contained classroom teacher in Houston, TX. After three short years in the classroom, Kewanta became the Teacher of the Year, a model classroom teacher, and a sought after instructional coach. Kewanta understands what it takes to work with a diverse group of students and help each one outperform the top schools in the district on state assessments. Kewanta graduated from Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY with the intention of becoming a pediatrician. However, she realized that her real passion was to teach. “The best way for me to serve children is to be an educator. But, after my first two long months in the classroom, I wanted to give up and walk away forever. No amount of theory could prepare me for that shock. I discovered that theory alone could not make me a highly effective teacher. I needed to know what to say, what to do, and how to be. Now, I can reach more students by training other educators to also be highly effective.” Kewanta speaks to educators, campus leaders, and district leaders at educational conferences all over the country. She also conducts campus and district training in classroom management, differentiated instruction, new teacher training, and Elementary STEM. Kewanta is dedicated to the education of teachers, parents, and students.
