“I definitely think we’re having more conversations about social justice in education. It was talked about in my masters in education program, but it’s talked about more now. At the same time, I’m at the point and I know others are at the point where it’s like, 'Okay, I’m just talking. Let’s do something now.'
Advocating for social and racial justice in education has made me more aware of the big and small and nuanced ways that I have been oppressing students, because I have been going with the status quo, going with the system. I’ve learned ways I can be more inclusive, create safer spaces where students feel affirmed and valued. I am also more focused on and cherish relationships with students and educator-to-educator relationships as well.
When you are bringing in multiple voices and experiences, when students have more texts and more things to think critically between and across and through and about, I know that I am giving my students a more effective education."
