Listening, Reflecting, Reading, and Amplifying

I’ve been purposely been quiet in this space for the last few weeks.  It was important that I take some time to listen and reflect.  Reading has always been my favourite way to process, and that was very much the case over the last few weeks as I’ve begun to examine my journey as an anti racist educator. I’ve had some uncomfortable conversations about myself, my profession as a teacher, and my local and global communities.  I’m still learning, I’m still thinking, and I’m still making mistakes and adjusting my perspective because of those mistakes. Here are some of the voices that I have recently read or revisited that have been pivotal in my ongoing journey:
