My personal story is one of triumph in the face of insurmountable obstacles. I was born into poverty and attended schools with the worst reputations in Kingston, Jamaica, where days saw me running for my life to escape bullets, in order to get to my school. The effect of those experiences was negated by me having one amazing teacher who believed in my potential and created an atmosphere where I, along with other students, could thrive and dream big. Today, as an educator of 20 years, in three continents, a social justice advocate, I am 100% confident that if teachers and administrators understand what equitable practices will do for their students, they would not make the curriculum content their priority, but EQUITY. When equity is embraced and infused in ALL aspects of a teacher or administrator's decisions, progress will be made in the mindsets of children, especially those, who like me, had the odds stacked against them. Today, I am successful because of my teacher. I will show teachers and administrators practical ways of infusing equity in their practices. I may have a parent who will share a brief testimonial as to how her engagement with my class, helped both her and her child.
