One More Reason to Love Teaching

Kids and the things they do. Last year I attended the Persons of Color Conference/ Students for Diversity Leadership Conference. This is an annual conference for Independent and Private School from across the country that specifically address issues and concerns for faculty and students of color. Last year I went as an extra body and had one of those trans-formative moments as person, let alone as a teacher. This year I was privileged once again to take some adventurous teens to the conference in Denver. You can follow our exploits here.

These are the kind of experiences where I get to witness students learning and growing right in front of me. I am in awe of these young women and the promise they hold for the future.
