Much of my educator community lives in Las Vegas, and works for Clark County School District. As the district and city that provided my initial educator start, that laid the foundation for my career, it holds a special place in my heart.
Reading this, subsequently hearing from people about it, was hard. I don’t know what we can do–what we can collectively do that ensures a quality educational experience for all. What I do know is that this is not sustainable.
To anyone and everyone still in the trenches, know — pause, shutdown, online, or in-person — I am in awe and thankful, and as for the rest of us: it’s time to find better supports and solutions.
As we head into the final two weeks of November, I am reminded, and will remind others, to take some time and double-check plans . . . this month, and every month: Have I included Indigneous voices? This month in particular: How will I ensure my instruction, my holiday recognition, is inclusive, well-rounded, whole?
I have returned to professional development; I am back presenting webinars!
Join me for a new topic, a very relevant and needed discussion on the unique needs of the Latin/Latine/Latinx community.
My hope and goal: a focused opportunity to evaluate and recommit ourselves to differentiation–every child deserves a holistic educational environment that reaffirms their potential, and propels their learning.
–As always: I understand cost can be prohibitive; so I offer a reminder that claps, share, likes, words of encouragement are equally welcomed & valued gestures of support 🖤
