Two College of Education graduate students will be among the slate of presenters at this year's TEDxUGA event.

Stepnanie Jones

Stephanie P. Jones, a doctoral candidate in language and literacy education, and Leon Tsao, a master's student in educational psychology, will be among the speakers on March 27 in the Tate Center's Grand Hall. The event is 2-6 p.m. and tickets, which are $12 each, are available as of 9 a.m. Thursday. _(Note: There is a limited number of seats, and this event usually sells out quickly.)_Jones is an award-winning English educator who studies the ways African-American families engage with literacies in and out of the classroom, and how those liteeracies can help shape curriculum. She has written several opinion pieces for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Teaching for Social Justice.

Leon Taso

Tsao works on neurodiversity advocacy (the idea that we should embrace the differences in each other's brains), finding the relationship between ADHD and creativity, the benefits of collaborations between engineers and artists, and identifying the needs of philosophically gifted students. He is working on a book of short essays and poems about our interconnectedness and maintains a video blog on personal growth through personality typology
