A guest post by SEED Leader Ann Hite, a Student Support Coach (supporting students and staff using preventive and Restorative strategies) at Roseville Area Middle School in Minnesota.
Teachers are under a lot of scrutiny these days. I have found that one of the ways we defend ourselves against this critique is by pointing to social disparities over which we have no control (poverty, housing, health care, etc.) and the negative impact those things have on achievement. So, as a White teacher, when I talk about equity with colleagues, I work to stay focused on what teachers can do to make a difference for our students of color.
