• #ACPA15 Ann Marie Klotz: I Didn't Know - Real Talk About First Gen Kids

    This PechaKucha will draw on several short poignant anecdotes (real talk!) about what it’s like to be a first generation college student. It will encourage practitioners to think of innovative ways to help students where they are and to limit the amount of internal anxiety around what they don’t know. This session will make you laugh AND will be a call to action!
