05.02.16To All the Teachers Out There!

Today kicked off the beginning of Teacher’s Appreciation Week, so of course, PROJECT EDQUITY had to chime in to share our many thanks!

Too often, teachers are single-handedly blamed for all of the things “wrong” with education. Test scores, students’ behavior problems, and so much more, are continually pinned on teachers.

But the negative rhetoric about teachers is simplistic and mythical. The fact is, there are a ton of amazing teachers out there inspiring kids everyday to learn, grow, explore, create, and believe in themselves. Good teachers empower students in some of the most important ways. For example, my second grade teacher empowered and encouraged me to be a voracious reader, which was a skill that would get me through college, and especially grad school. My third grade teacher made me believe that I could be good at math, even when multiplication seemed impossible. My sixth grade teacher taught me that science can be fun and was daring enough to take our class on three overnight field trips to prove it! At every level of education, I’ve encountered some terrific teachers and I am a better person for having known and learned from them. My encounters with good teachers (as a student or professional), everywhere from South Sacramento to Oakland leads me to hold steadfast to my conviction that great teachers are everywhere and incredible learning and connecting happens everyday.

So, shout out to all of the incredible teachers who have helped to shape me, my family, and the work we do at PROJECT EDQUITY. There’s no doubt you deserve more than a week of praise!

Know some great teachers doing amazing work to teach and empower students, while fostering and celebrating diversity, equity, and inclusion? Let us know! We’d love to highlight them. Shoot us an email at info@projectedquity.com with a short description of what makes them incredible and you might see them featured on our website!

Dr. Kandace Forrester is co-founder, managing partner, and contributing author at PROJECT EDQUITY.
