So this week has been eye opening! First, I learned that there are people in my life who are not who I thought. YIKES. But, that didn’t deter me from posting things I hope will be helpful in getting them to rethink their action. I have spent my career teaching in very diverse schools. I worry about my Black students because they could be the future George, Brionna, or Trayvon. But, I can do better! I’m really diving in to research to understand how I can be a better ally. I had read How to be AntiRacist by Ibram X but I am going to start on a few books geared at helping teens be antiracist so I can spread the message to my students.
My new hearing aids came in Friday! They are really cool-they pair with my phone, there is an app that will translate foreign language you hear, they are rechargeable, and the list goes on. My audiologist was so excited because they are just so cool. But, they are pretty visible. I thought I was prepared and over it. Turns out, I’m not. I’m trying to get there though.
So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!
