How Does Racial Identity Impact Teaching & Learning?
While planning, cleaning, and organizing are always a part of Faculty/Staff Workdays, so too is setting aside time for professional growth and development. Last Monday, we not only readied classrooms for your children's return but also prepared ourselves professionally and personally by participating in a workshop about how racial identity impacts teaching and learning. By investigating our own personal, social, and universal identities, Springmont faculty and staff took a closer look at how we recognize and challenge unconscious bias and systematic racism in service of all Springmont learners. This important work supports our delivery of the school's mission and core values and provides a framework for instilling a global perspective and respect for diversity of all kinds in our students.
Just as educators benefit from professional development, so do parents! Please save the date for our next Parent Discussion Forum, Raising Anti-Racist Children, led by iChange Collaborative on Thursday, March 11, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Look for more info and the Zoom link in the coming weeks!
