Culturally Responsive and Antiracist Literature

This ongoing monthly teacher leadership event (fall 2021-spring 2022) will explore culturally and community responsive texts and discuss themes of social justice and antiracism.


What our participants had to say

"Kris is an amazing facilitator! I always look forward to our discussions and I always gain insight to adapt to my own instructional approach. The topics and engagement with my colleagues is inspiring! Thank you."

-Jesse, Salinas Teacher​

It has been refreshing to come together with a group of professionals who are working toward culturally responsive and antiracist teaching and learning. It has made me feel less isolated in this professional and personal pursuit.

- Jen, North Monterey County Teacher ​

“I wanted to share that, for this session and the previous one, I started the meeting feeling very low and exhausted and ended it feeling energized. I really appreciate all of your efforts on our behalf.”

-TC, Santa Cruz teacher​
