If your equity work in schools does not involve shifting power, resources, access, or opportunities to an underserved or under supported group, you are not doing equity work in schools. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

How many of our third graders can read to learn- to get information and THEIR OWN MEANING from the page? (separate question is who grew” in first and second grades.) Why do we settle for bits of growth when the truth is we could be causing 3rd graders like this if we changed?

Had a fantastic day with principals and coaches yesterday about what support is needed to ensure that all scholars have access to grade level complex text...they had great questions and are hungry for collaboration to ensure that we get it right. Yesterday was a good day✊🏾

I absolutely want more white people to leverage their privilege and speak out/take action against racism. This is a good thing. However, I am reluctant to get overly excited and offer this level of applause for things we have been shouting and doing for years.

Where do teachers have autonomy? Kate Gerson says that the intellectual work that teachers do & helping students make meaning of content is where the creativity and art of teaching happens (NOT getting to choose materials on Pinterest or TpT)

What we do with curriculum with our students so they are making meaning for themselves - is where we thrive!

Our art as teachers is creating an environment where students can make meaning of the content themselves, not trying to make curriculum. - such a good point from !

Waking up in the largest hotel I’ve ever seen & it is wall to wall educators- a city of nerds here to think about our craft, our obstacles, the obstacles in ourselves. Looking fwd to problem solving together re how to close our collective & relentless provision gap!

Grade level work is mission critical! Equity = ALL students engaging in grade level standards based instruction! Love to hear speak about the important work of standards.

Today, I facilitated PLC meetings at the middle school. We talked about the student we weren’t able to reach, the one who haunts us. Thank you, , for sharing your story about Frank.

This is no surprise and unfortunately indicative of the world we live in. Cultural Competency and Bias training has to become a non-negotiable... people are causing irreparable damage to our children "out of the goodness of their hearts".
