All children deserve schools in which they are free from bullying, feel a sense of belonging, and have their many identities recognized and honored. Schools must be places that respect and welcome all children and families, and those children and families are increasingly diverse. When staff work together to create a welcoming climate, all students benefit. We know that when students feel safe and nurtured at school, they improve not just their academic achievement but their confidence in themselves and their ability to work toward justice in the world.
I am excited to offer a variety of trainings for school staffs, organizations, and district personnel seeking to improve their school diversity climate. I look forward to working with you.
