Fear of what others will say. Fear of the unknown. Fear of missing out. Fear of making a mistake. It creeps in too early.

Most will agree that teachers, as poorly as they are paid, are at the frontline of how generations of children go out into the world. Teachers help shape a childโ€™s moral compass and worldview, whether we intend to or not. Last week, we watched as #charlottesville schools were shut down due to โ€œethnic cleansingโ€ threats by a 17 year old white supremacist. This was a reminder to all of us that we are responsible to be vigilant in our anti-racist work; especially since 82 % of us teachers who are White. Today, I would like all hands up for fighting white supremacy in the classroom. That begins by listening to BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) voices; educators, publishers, parents, academics, etc. A few I want to highlight in my new post (๐Ÿ”— in bio): @thetututeacher @britthawthorne @nowhitesaviors @leeandlow @readlikearockstar @helpingkidsrise and the #meandwhitesupremacy workbook by @laylafsaad is a perfect place to start. ๐Ÿ”— in bio. . . . . #biracialbookworms #amreading #mkbkids #kidsbookstagram #representationmatters #equalityforall #kidlitpics #teachersofinstagram #socialjustice #socialjusticebooks #socialjusticeeducators #iteachtoo #kidlitwomen #humanrights #whywemarch #equaled #teachersbelieveblacklivesmatter #teachersforsocialjustice #equityineducation #readyourworld #antiracist #antiracisteducation #antiracistbookclub #whitesupremacy #fightingwhitesupremacy
