Rating

Hosted by PBS Wisconsin Education, and created with and for Wisconsin educators, the aka Teacher blog offers a space for exploring the many hats educators today wear, and the topics that aren’t covered in teacher preparation programs.

Anti-Racist Education | aka Teacher
Only Sharing Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

A major part of being an anti-racist educator is making sure that all of your students feel represented. Some White educators may feel overwhelmed, and maybe even nervous, when trying to create a space where students feel that they’re being seen and heard, because you want to make sure you ‘get it right’.

But discomfort is good, and it’s part of the growth that needs to happen on your journey to becoming an anti-racist educator. BIPOC students don’t have time for White educators to get comfortable, and it’s on White educators to take those first steps.

Discover what Wisconsin educators, Gail Bertram and Marguerite Penick-Parks have to share about the things you can do immediately to begin creating anti-racist learning environments, from the books you read to your students, to the physical spaces in which learning takes place in a short video and companion essay in the post on the aka Teacher blog.

Teaching can be a beautiful, playful, and life-giving profession—but it also can be very, very stressful.

And often, in the face of stress, you power through and be the best you can for your students because they are so important. But guess what? YOU’RE IMPORTANT, and we know it’s sometimes easy to neglect taking care of your own needs in favor of others.
