MTSS and School Counseling: How Do They Fit Together?

Emily Goodman-Scott

Pre-Conference Speaker
October 6, 2022 | 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

ABOUT THIS SESSION: Is MTSS (PBIS/RTI) currently implemented in your school? Is your school considering implementation? Would you like to learn more? MTSS is widely implemented throughout the country and school counselors are often an integral part of implementation. Come to this session to discover the alignment between MTSS and Comprehensive School Counseling Programs (e.g., the ASCA National Model), gaining strategies to maximize your efforts. Work smarter, not harder. The presenter will share school based examples for implementation and alignment. Presentations can be adapted to provide content on specific tiers, such as Tier 1 prevention.

SPEAKER BIO: Dr. Emily Goodman-Scott is an Associate Professor in Counselor Education and the School Counseling Coordinator at Old Dominion University, in Virginia. As a previous school counselor and special education teacher, Dr. Goodman-Scott has been in education for nearly 15 years. She was a 2018 recipient of the Top 40 Under 40 award for her region, and served on the Virginia School Counselor Association board for 10 years, including most recently as Chair of the Board (2019-2020). She enjoys speaking at national conferences, invited state association workshops, and school districts trainings.

Dr. Goodman-Scott is the lead editor of the 2019 book A School Counselor’s Guide to Multi-tiered Systems of Support, and more recently an author of the 2020 book published by the American School Counselor Association, Making MTSS Work. She has co-authored the I Can series of children’s social stories.

Emily Goodman-Scott will also be presenting two breakout sessions.


Be the ONE!

Dr. John W. Hodge

Keynote Speaker
October 7, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m.

ABOUT THIS SESSION: The education of America’s youth is a challenging prospect when one considers the many burdens faced by impoverished children and their families. Research indicates that poverty need not be a barrier to academic excellence. As co-author of the book Standing in the Gap, Dr. Hodge states, “Across the nation, schools are demonstrating that it can be done: That students can reach high standards, that all children can succeed, that the gap between white and minority students, poor and affluent, can be closed.” More often than not, one caring adult can make all the difference in the world. This presentation will encourage all of us to BE THE ONE.

SPEAKER BIO: Dr. John W. Hodge is president and co-founder of Urban Learning and Leadership Center (ULLC), an organization focused on student achievement and reduction of the achievement gap. He has served as a reading teacher, English teacher, AVID teacher, Assistant Principal and Associate Director of AVID Center Eastern Division. He served as Director of An Achievable Dream Academy, an inner city school that piloted many of the interventions used by Urban Learning and Leadership Center. An Achievable Dream Academy is a high performing, high poverty school that has received numerous national awards. Dr. Hodge is also the author of You Can Get in the Way. Prior to his career in education, Dr. Hodge distinguished himself in the service of our country with the 7th Infantry Division of the United States Army.

What sets Dr. John Hodge apart in the field of education is his well-documented ability to put research and theory into everyday practice in rural, urban and suburban schools. He has served as an inspirational speaker at national, regional, and statewide conferences across the United States. His presentations are often “the spark” for schools in their quest to meet and exceed state/federal accreditation standards and implement strategies for continuous improvement.

Dr. John W. Hodge will also be presenting a breakout session.
