March on Washington
I had the privilege of joining thousands of other citizens in Washington, D.C. for the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. During our time we listened to many speakers that spoke about equality and justice.
As a teacher, I know that equity is one of the cornerstones of America’s public education system. At this time of rapid change in our nation and the world, the need to ensure equity in education has never been greater. All students, including students who come from high poverty communities, English language learners, students with disabilities, and students of color need meaningful educational opportunity.
I am committed to participate in discussions and action that help treat all of our students as equals. Students learn when they are treated with respect and know they are cared for. Here are a few pictures from the event.
