Keynote Speaker: Worcester Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Monárrez.
Rachel H. Monárrez, PhD believes in the possibility of every child, and this approach will guide her daily interactions as the Superintendent for Worcester Public Schools. Beginning her twenty-ninth year of education, Dr. Monárrez holds a vast knowledge base for academic excellence, professional development and collaborative practices. Rachel has served as a teacher, school principal, Director of English Learner Programs and Special Education, Assistant Superintendent and Deputy Superintendent. As a social justice champion, she works collaboratively with all stakeholders to foster a culture of equity, academic excellence and high expectations for all learners. Her favorite quote is: Excellence can be attained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical and expect more than others this is possible. Dr. Monárrez received a BA, History from UC Irvine, an MA in Education and Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University with an emphasis in Urban Education. She is the proud mother of Natalee, an emerging writer, teacher, and poet and married to Jesus Monárrez, a retired educator.
