It's not enough 
to just be happy 
to be here. 
How are we going 
to go farther 
than this? 

Honored to be one of tonight's panelists in a discussion with teachers from California, Detroit, Philly, and NYC for the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans on the Current State of Black Teachers. I'm am humbled and ever so grateful for this opportunity.

Some of the topics we discussed were:

-Why is it crucial for our students to have African American teachers?
-How do we attract and maintain more teachers of color?
-How do we celebrate our teachers of color who are helping their students achieve everyday in their classrooms? 
-What are some resources for classroom teachers now or folks who are interested in teaching in urban communities? 

 The link will be available soon! I will be sure to post it for you all! 

Lead. Learn. Love.
