My Style

Workshops are designed for educators working in all settings including early childhood, religious education, after-school programs, K-12, public and private schools, and teacher education programs at colleges and universities.

 

My workshop style is “learning by doing,” honoring your educator’s entry point into anti-bias antiracism. Educators spend the bulk of their time exploring a range of hands-on lessons to deepen their knowledge and practice. Participants are empowered to be full shareholders in their learning journey by engaging in small group active movement; this is not a “sit and get.” Expect to learn the language of inequality, identify practices you want to change, create a self-study for action and join a community of accomplices. Participants will have time to ask questions, share concerns and request specific resources they need to continue this work.

An interactive workshop designed to empower educators to utilize anti-bias education. The training equips members with a common language to assist with navigating discussions around diversity and justice in the classroom. Participants will leave with an understanding of how children develop racial and ethnic prejudices early in life, how to identify stereotypes, how to respond to pre-prejudice, and the tools to combat all forms of explicit and implicit biases. Participants will develop anti-bias instructional goals that will help them to create a developmentally appropriate anti-bias environment. Activities are practiced throughout the workshop to promote further understanding.

Anti-bias parenting acknowledges we live in a racist society and demands us to disrupt the racism we breathe so every child (and family) can reach their fullest potential. This workshop is perfect for parents and caregivers looking to begin the journey of becoming anti-racist parents. We will learn activities that support each goal in the anti-bias education framework, strengthen our anti-racist language, and feel confident responding to our children’s questions.

This introductory workshop launches US-based educators into anti-racist practices through a historical context. In this introductory workshop, adults work to develop a liberatory consciousness, the process of developing an awareness that identifies the continuation of oppression and the recognition of privilege. Participants will explore the timeline of race and racism in education as a critical component for understanding racial inequities and structural racism. Structural racism involves the cumulative and compounding effects of various societal factors, including the history, culture, ideology, and interactions of institutions and policies that systematically privilege the dominant culture. Activities are practiced to promote further understanding of equity and inclusion principles. In this level two workshop, educators move from reacting to stereotypes to proactively addressing misconceptions and designing culturally belonging in their classroom. Workshop participants will learn by experiencing various lessons using critical engagement, differentiated instruction, and cooperative learning groups.
