Event description

Description

Join us for an experiential institute providing ample opportunities for Black teachers to share, reflect and set intentions for how to lead from the classroom. Teachers will deepen their commitment, relationships, and agency while developing strategies for leadership and sustainability. Participants will receive caring guidance and facilitation to collaboratively explore the personal and professional challenges they face as Black teachers in the United States.


Learn, examine and discover...

  • the effects of racism and other bias on education policies and practices

  • the implicit and explicit work of Black teachers in the United States

  • individual and organizational dynamics that impede the development and sustainability of Black teachers

  • concrete skills for health and wellness in challenging contexts

  • the importance of emotional intelligence and wellness in being a Black teacher in schools

  • research, tools and other resources to support the leadership and sustainability of Black teachers in an oppressive system


Don’t miss this opportunity to work in an affinity space with African American educators from the East Coast!

For all questions, email AATF's Director of Programs, Jaime Hawkins via jaime@aatf.org.
