A4: There are so many harmful narratives to disrupt right now that it’s completely overwhelming. Having honest conversations with students that begin with good literature that represents multiple (NONHARMFUL, TRUTHFUL) perspectives & helps to make people visible is a good start.

A3. I'm going to only purchase, recommend, and book talk books. It matters. Let cultural insiders tell their own stories, and purchase those books. Only.

A2: In my room, I want to value process over product when it comes to social-emotional learning. Reading books that honor the power within each of us, acknowledge human imperfections, & are a testament to the power healthy interdependence has to buoy us is my priority.

I loved the conversation it sparked last year. I love a book with no clear ending and lots to think about. Let me know what you think if you read it.

A1: I like picture books such as Each Kindness (Woodson) and Little Brown (Frazee) for early in the year. They invite lots of discussion about community.

Grateful to work for an administrator who chooses to spend $ on books instead of costly one-size-fits-all programs- Her directive: Look at your libraries, ask who's missing, fix it. Then, let's continue the conversation. This is ongoing work. I wish this for all teachers & kids.
