I’ve been teaching for 13 years, and this past school year has been like nothing I’ve ever seen … and nothing I ever imagined. Flip-flopping between groups of students, teaching with a mask, teaching with a shield, teaching over a screen – it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.

As an educator, I care about empowering and inspiring for every single one of my students. In my teaching journey, I’ve learned a lot about using student voice and choice to promote student participation, justice and inclusion. These strategies and the role of social justice in my teacher training has influenced these values.

This school year, my students are facing major challenges. Everything is done over the screen, and some students prefer other modes of learning. Their homes aren’t designed to be full-time learning spaces. Some students feel like they’re being set up for failure.
