Happy New Years to all !
I hope 2015 rings in with blessings for you and yours. As a writing teacher and mother, I am always encouraging young folks to write down a few New Year’s Resolutions. So, in the spirit of the day, I will outline a few of my own resolutions, specific to my activism in education. Here they are . . .
In 2015, as a teacher and a mother, resolve to :
- Refuse to be silent when I see systematic inequities built into our public education system.
- Use my pedestal to amplify the voices of others who fight for what is right, no matter how hard.
- Speak up for myself and others, even in the face of irrational criticism and hypocrisy.
- Write more. Reflect more. Research more.
- Holler More. Do More.
Do you have any resolutions for 2015? Please post in comments below.
Remember: If speaking up for what is right means you must speak up alone, do it.
