This session will guide participants in their understanding of their own identity, and how personal identity shows up, or doesn’t show up in their teaching. We will discuss why it’s essential to examine one’s own identity when working to achieve equitable social-emotional learning practices. Time will be dedicated for participants to reflect on different interactions they’ve had with students, the school related activities they choose to support, the topics and persons they choose to highlight in their content areas, and the lens through which they examine their own practice and world and how that shapes the experiences their students have under their care and guidance. Furthermore, direct connections to teacher identity and inclusive teaching practices will be made to the SEBH of students.

Educators who register for and attend all 8 sessions in the series will earn one free teacher license renewal credit! Register here for the credit.
