The essential role of teachers in ensuring education equity for every child has been amplified as a result of the pandemic. We thank you.
Yet, if it was challenging before to become and/or to remain a teacher (especially for teachers of color and American Indian teachers), what happens now? The racial demographic gap between teachers and students was unacceptable before (4% to 34%) – how do we find ways to keep our momentum going for teacher diversity efforts? What are the barriers and the opportunities to strengthen the teaching profession because of the pandemic?
We are thrilled to host a series of meetings in May to discuss these and other dilemmas we are facing. The series is organized along MnEEP’s TeachMN2020 teacher journey framework:
EXPLORE the teaching profession
BECOME a teacher through preparation
GROW as a beginning teacher
THRIVE as an experienced teacher or educator
No matter your background or experience, let’s inquire and envision how we individually and collectively can be part of the solution in advancing systems change to create and sustain a racially diverse teacher workforce.
Please join us for these engaging meetings. All meetings will occur over Zoom and login information will be provided closer to the meeting dates.
