At my school I'm the only African American male teacher and there are two African American female teachers (one who just started last year) I've been at my current school for 15 years. I, of course, are part of our school leadership team, PBIS team, Gentlemen's Agreement, Liaison, and I try to advocate equity throughout the school with my colleagues and with the students. The language is spoken but unfortunately the manifestation of what is talked about does not have the traction needed to bring about real change at this point. Obstacles are plentiful and some colleagues are getting weary at this point.

Correction does not mean unprofessionalism. This goes to show that as we become more seasoned in age, we do not like to be flexible or see it as a learning moment on the spot.

Shall we not think of white people as a monolith?

Why are educators of color hesitant? I am professional and I am direct. It is called bringing awareness. Unless we directly address inequitable situations, how will we will as of educators of color be advocates of our students of color?

I am 73 years young. People underestimate my ability to do things including teach. I just ignore it. I am who I am and show them they are wrong. I have encountered being discriminated because I am a woman, Hispanic and in the mathematics, science and technology field. I have funny stories to tell. I have always dealt with all that discrimination as seeing it as their problem not mine. I am who I am no matter what other people think

@Anna-Marie-Smith - as a white person, I know what they mean. No group is a monolith but like @hema-Kodai said, whiteness is. When white people are referenced it’s a shorthand. It’s not/rarely personal or diminutive

My best teachers were white teachers that pushed me to be the best version of me. I am forever thankful to them. We need more “white colleagues” willing to become co-conspirators in our fight for equity.

Joy for me is nurturing my inner child and heal what ever unresolved issues I have within. Doing mindfulness exercises, yoga, and getting in touch with my inner stirrings by doing ‘EXAMEN’ daily meditation. Surround myself with lots of positivity and good energy!

Keeping the focus on the needs of the students, meet them where they are at, and remember that you cannot control what others say, but you can control how you respond to it. While I understand all groups of people of many ethnic backgrounds have been through oppression, are going through oppression and will continue to be oppressed...for all reasons...faith, language, ethnicity, etc., We are in a position to share the joy of loving each and every child that is placed in our care. We can control the classroom environment, and can make it a safe haven. We can train children how to respond to hardships when they come. I grew up at time/place when I was taught to accept all. I continue to do so. Understanding the background is huge! I've worked in several ethnic backgrounds, and currently work with refugees from Burma/Myamar/Korea. Tough to hear what these children have gone through, but the JOY is looking forward, and learning how to adapt in a positive way.
Alison Mall
01:04:06
Reginald … typically “co-conspirator” has a negative connotation related to evil, secret plans … I’m thinking they are reframing this word with a positive spin.

There are no teachers of color in my school. I asked for a diversity PD from my superintendent. I gave examples of racism I’d seen in my district. I was told it was my fault for not reporting it, and there would be no such PD offered. I am an art teacher, I’ve installed BLM gun violence memorials that I’ve had to take down. I’ve had students create diversity art to hang in local businesses, and those have also been removed. I get so frustrated with the hate!
