When You Know Better You Do Better: Teachers Who See Beyond A Deficit Lens

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this session, you can expect to hear teachers sharing how their use of counter narratives (conversations surrounding social injustices or "taboo topics") in their classrooms/schools has given them purpose and hope in the midst of an unjust and unapologetic school system that seems to favor some over others. Participants will have the opportunity to live through the experiences of these teachers as they uncover the struggles, challenges, and triumphs they've encountered while advocating with and for their children. With so many teachers secretly believing that poverty is an unchanging state of being, all children need to come in contact with educators who empower, not define them.

I am a second grade teacher at Windsor Elementary and I absolutely love my job! I received my bachelors and masters degree from The University of South Carolina!I am a true believer in teaching through social justice and also in teaching the whole child! I can only speak from my own experiences and what has worked for me, but I am always open to new ideas and to change!
