Dr. Nancy Dome has been supporting children to overcome institutional and systemic barriers and developing educators for over 20 years. Starting her career as a Child Care Worker, she has worked through the ranks as a classroom teacher, teacher leader, college professor, and now co-founder of Epoch Education.
Epoch Education’s primary charge is to provide current, accessible and transformational Professional Development for educators and students on the topics of Equity, Critical Race Theory, and Culturally Relevant Teaching and Learning to support the development of the necessary cultural competencies needed to effectively respond to our ever diversifying world. The workshops, keynotes, online courses, and trainings utilize myriad modalities to ensure content is accessible to all ages, gently supports stepping into discomfort on hard topics, and calls for deep personal reflection.
