I have been an elementary school teacher for over 20 years in a variety of grades from Kindergarten to 5th grade. In recent years I have become increasingly active in addressing issues of equity and inclusion in education. From giving a speech at a Black Lives Matter march , to teach introduction to Anti-Bias Education professional developments, and researching and implementing diverse core literature for all grades at my school. It is my goal to work in a position where these issues are my main focus. I believe my experience and interests make me a good candidate for equity position.

I grew up as a biracial child of a Black father and German mother. I directly experienced implicit and explicit biases. I was one of only three Black students in my middle school and one of only five in high school. Currently I am the only tenured teacher in my school district who is Black. I know how harmful microaggressions can be for both students and faculty in a school setting. My goal is ensure no student or faculty feels alone in dealing with racism on any scale. Through training, practice and accurate language we can tackle these problems and dismantle the system that has for too long not allowed BIPOC members of the global majority to take up space in our communities. My main concern is that cultural, racial, class and social biases continue in our educational system. Explicit biases are more obvious and potentially easier to address but implicit biases can be just as harmful. Teaching staff need to undergo a well thought out program of anti-bias training to address these issues. Representation matters from counselors to administrators to our teachers.
