“Thank You for Your Passion and Openness”

Thank you for your passion and openness.  This work is so important, and we as educators need to put our children ahead of ourselves.  This self reflection is absolutely critical.

Thank you! As I defend my students with disabilities against biases. It never occurred to me that “as simple” as Race of my children in something that has to be identified and celebrated as well.

“I Feel Passionately About Equity”

After today’s session, I realized that I feel passionately about equity in the classroom.  However, being passionate is not enough, I must more to bring awareness to the issue. I find myself sweeping things “under the rug” rather than addressing the issues which plays a roles in why we are where we are today.
