Lecturer to Speak on Introverted Students in the Classroom


Heidi Kasevich, Educational Director at Quiet Revolution, is coming to MSU to speak about how educators can create structures and dynamics in the classroom that recognize and reward introverted learners.

Her talk, scheduled for Wednesday, December 5, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Studio 60 Theatre, located in the basement of the Auditorium Building, is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

As the Educational Director at Quiet Revolution, Kasevich runs the Quiet Schools Network, a nationwide program that focuses on guiding school communities to cultivate inclusive cultures where all temperaments can thrive. She also serves as the leadership coach for Quiet Ambassadors and is the lecturer on quiet leadership and temperament diversity at schools across the country.

Quiet Revolution was formed by Susan Cain, author of the best-selling book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.

Susan Cain's best-selling book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, and her wildly successful TED Talk started a revolution in corporate and educational programs to embrace introverts and offer parity in traditionally extroverted models.

“Susan Cain's best-selling book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World that Can't Stop Talking, and her wildly successful TED Talk started a revolution in corporate and educational programs to embrace introverts and offer parity in traditionally extroverted models,” said Rob Roznowski, Professor of Acting in MSU’s Department of Theatre. “Cain started the Quiet Schools program to help schools create classrooms that offer successful strategies to all types of learners."

Committed to expanding students’ perspectives, Kasevich has served as Director of Académie de Paris, an Oxbridge Academic Program, and is a Gardner Carney Leadership Institute Alumna Scholar. She received her B.A. from Haverford and her M.A. and Ph.D. from New York University.

Kasevich also is the author of the book Guide to Giving, a highly acclaimed philanthropy curriculum, and founder of Closing the Gap, a sought-after leadership curriculum for aspiring women leaders. Kasevich’s proficiency is deeply rooted in her 25 years of experience as an educator at Nightingale-Bamford, an all-female university preparatory school in Manhattan on the Upper East Side. She also served as a history department chair at Dalton, Berkeley-Carroll, New York University, and Cooper Union.
