Our guest this week, Dr. Deneia Y. Fairweather, will discuss the process for turning a degree in anthropology to a practice in entrepreneurship.

Dr. Deneia Y. Fairweather is an applied anthropologist and educational consultant who works with school administrators, educators, families, and youth to develop and implement inclusive practices for exceptional students—that is to ensure that all exceptional students have equal educational, social, and future outcomes as their peers.

After working over ten years in the public educational system in the United States, Dr. Fairweather believes that applying disruptive innovation into traditional educational environments is the best way to advance the social, emotional, and academic development of our youth.

Dr. Fairweather is the founder and owner of ESE Consulting, LLC, an exceptional student educational service that focuses on results-based solutions for educational environments. This service offers site specific professional development opportunities for educators and enrichment opportunities for exceptional youth through her program called Anthropology in Motion ™ (AIM). You can find more information about AIM on Dr. Fairweather’s photoblog

Dr. Fairweather holds a doctorate degree in Applied Anthropology from the University of South Florida, Tampa and a Masters in Education from the University of South Florida, St. Petersburg. She also holds a Professional Educators Certificate from the State of Florida with certifications in exceptional student education, reading education, elementary education and a gifted endorsement.

Dr. Fairweather’s research focused on how educational exclusion is produced among African American male youth in Hillsborough County Public Schools. Educational exclusion is a process where students and their families are denied access to certain levels, places, privileges in the educational system. This process is usually the first step towards producing student drop outs. Using a multidimensional approach to capture the problem including Photovoice, interviewing, and participant observation and a theory of practice, Dr Fairweather’s research revealed that exclusion is produced by interacting social forces that are often too subtle or hidden to detect and identify. She calls for educational environments to serve as a place of healing with an honest collaboration among educational stakeholders to help produce equal educational outcomes for all students.
