Listening With Our Hearts

lavender-823600_1920

Listen with an open heart

Withhold judgment

Ask questions

Educate yourself

Strive to understand

Take action

These are the thoughts that have been swirling in my mind as my heart aches for people in our country and for society as a whole. As white educators and citizens, we must first recognize that we view our country's tragedy from the lens of our privilege. We must listen, truly listen to the voices most impacted not only by this tragedy but of the realities of living and being a person of color in our country and in our classrooms. 

Rather than share our insights and feelings, we’ve decided to highlight those voices by creating a Padlet of articles, resources, and tools to educate ourselves and consider how we can best support our students of color and our communities. We will continue to update our Padlet as more resources become available so do keep in touch and check back with us. 

We are all in this together and we will be learning alongside you. 

In solidarity and with love, 

Krista and Shelley
