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’ve always loved using education technology to support my students, so now that my school community is learning online, choosing digital tools to inspire my kids feels like such an exciting opportunity for me. But when I lead a PD session for fellow teachers on virtual teaching, I often hear questions like, “There are so many digital teaching tools! How are we supposed to know what to use when?”

Everything feels different this school year. Like so many of you, I’m teaching remotely – and I’ve found that one of the biggest challenges has been building and deepening my relationships with my students while physically separated. These past few months, I’ve made strengthening that part of my practice my focus.

I always think back-to-school planning is a great time to challenge myself and grow as a teacher – but this year, the challenges are already built in! My school community is going to start the year 100% online, and then move into a hybrid plan as soon as conditions allow – so there’s a lot to think about.

With COVID-19 causing so many disruptions, all of us educators are having to adapt so quickly. And for those of us who support students with IEPs, the challenges can feel especially daunting.

As a young person, I didn’t know what it was like to feel valued, heard, seen, or loved by most of my teachers – and that’s part of what led me to teaching.

I’m working to make sure my students understand my goal for all of them: to start wherever they are now, and go as far as we can together.

I start off the school year by going over the scientific method with my students. I ask if they know what a hypothesis is, and they say, “A hypothesis is an educated guess, and then you collect data, and you prove it right or wrong.” And I say, “Well, it’s a little bit more than that. I’m going to tell you a fact: There has never been a hypothesis proven correct. That’s not what science is.”

I am doing this work because there are kids and teachers who are trying to learn new things and change the world. That is what excites me. And that’s why I think of myself as data-informed, but student-driven.
