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.

As teachers, it’s up to us to make sure our students learn their histories, especially our Black students – whose stories have never been centered in the curriculum.

As educators like you take on challenge after challenge in this particularly difficult year, we’ve been so inspired by all the ways you’re supporting your students – and your fellow teachers.

I’ve been teaching for 13 years, and I’ve done a little bit of everything: working in school communities as an English teacher, as a coach, as an instructional specialist.

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.

If education doesn’t feel personal to my students, it won’t feel compelling or real – but if I can get them to connect with what they’re learning, I can inspire them to envision new possibilities for their lives.

As a student of color, I didn’t have the best experience in school. My family migrated from Jamaica, and I’m a first-generation American. When I got to school, there were a lot of assumptions made about me and my life – and my teachers had lower expectations for me than they had for other students.

I was very humbled by an experience I had last March, after the switch to distance learning. I was driving to go pick up some groceries, and I saw three of our students sitting on a curb with a Chromebook. I thought, “What in the world are they doing?”

As more educators step up to do the work of anti-racism in their classrooms and communities – and make what John Lewis called “good trouble” – it’s essential that we seek out resources in every subject area that center the experiences of those who are Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC).
