HAMMOND – A student research project will bring international best-selling author
and consultant on teaching and parenting Barbara Coloroso to speak at Southeastern
Louisiana University at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Coloroso will present her much-acclaimed lecture on bullying in the university’s Cate Teacher Education Center’s first floor lecture hall. The lecture is free and open to all students, teachers, and the general public.
Her lecture is being held in conjunction with a course on classroom management and educational theorists and came about after a student, Candace Crespo of Covington, contacted Coloroso to discuss her research, said course instructor Jeanne Brooks.
A former classroom teacher and university professor, Coloroso draws on her years of training in sociology and special education. She is the author of four best-selling books, including “The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander” and “kids are worth it!”
She has appeared on numerous television programs on all major networks, National Public Radio and Oprah. Coloroso has also been featured in publications such as the New York Times, Time, Newsweek and U.S. News & World Report.
