Ruby Ibarra Saturday, October 24, 2020 Dr. Joyce Epstein Saturday, October 17, 2020 Studies show that we must change from the "old way" of thinking about parental involvement to a "new way" of organizing programs of school, family, and community partnerships. This presentation will guide county, district, and school leaders to know and apply research-based structures and processes to engage all families in ways that help students reach academic and behavioral goals for success in school. Meet Ruby Ibarra, a Bay Area local who is a scientist by day and a hip hop recording artist by night. Her personal story of how she grew up and how she forged a career in both science and the arts will inspire parents and youth how to channel obstacles into opportunities. She will also explore identity, culture, and family, and how these things can be integrated into art.

Dr. Epstein was named a Fellow of the American Educational Research Association in 2009 and received the Elizabeth Cohen Distinguished Career in Applied Sociology of Education Award (AERA, 2009). In all of her work, she is interested in the connections of research, policy, and practice. Ruby Ibarra was born in the Philippines and spent the first 4 years of her life in Tacloban City before her family eventually settled in San Lorenzo, California. As a teenager, Ruby began crafting her own rhymes until she began to develop her own style and became comfortable with sharing her story. Currently, she's a scientist at a Bay Area biotech company, working in the quality-control department on COVID-19 test kits and yes, even a vaccine. Ruby is also an up-and-coming hip-hop artist, performing sold-out shows with her band of eight, the Balikbayans.
