We Fight is excited to have Dr. Michael Kern speak at our next youth mental health summit on November 1st at the Northwestern Michigan College.
Dr. Kern started his career as a certified teacher in New Orleans where he taught 4th and 5th-grade science and high school technical theater.
Dr. Kern left teaching and received his Ph.D. in School Psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University.
His research has focused on memory, note-taking, study skills, and the intersection between learning difficulty and emotions. He has a particular interest in translating research on learning and emotional development into meaningful strategies that help students become independent learners.
Dr. Kern is a licensed psychologist in the state of Michigan, works at the Interlochen Center for the Arts, and is a nationally and state-certified school psychologist.
He completed his APA-accredited internship and a year of post-doctoral training in Chicago at Deerfield High School.
