My first Black male teacher, Mr. Gordon at F. L. Stanton Elementary School in Atlanta, was the most impressionable history teacher I ever had. Mr. Gordon was cool because his son was in the same grade asme . He definitely had the swag of that era. All the kids loved and respected Mr. Gordon. As I reflect on Mr. Gordon, I see  how my colleagues are inspiring and helping build up the next generations of thinkers, builders, and creators. Teachers, yes teachers, are doing the work of building the next generations of thinkers, creators, laborers, educators, Civil Rights leaders, and builders ..read more

Co-teaching shouldn’t be optional if it works for students; it should be a priority.  The bigger question though is why haven’t public schools made co – teaching a mandatory part of learning? In my experience this is the case in very few schools and tru ..read more

Parents and educational advocates are doing some amazing work. At the onset of the pandemic, I had a conversation with parents and educational leaders and said, “This is the time that parents, students, and teachers are going to have to truly ban together in order to reimagine education!” Unfortunately, the educational system and power structure did what it does best and caused educational leaders, teachers, parents, and students to be more deeply divided than ever. Over the three school years that we have been working to educate children in public schools during the pandemic, I have attended ..read more
