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 expertise is in working with students, families, and teachers to evaluate and provide school-based support for students with a variety of learning and socioemotional needs.
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.
