If you're not currently teaching, what are you focused on?:
I am focusing on the involvement and engagement of families in the classroom, school and students' educational journey. I want to uplift and uncover new ways to bring families to be greater contributors and supporters in their school community.
I am currently managing Collaborations at The Teachers Guild. I believe that every student regardless of color, race, immigration status, and socioeconomic status deserves a quality education and does not limit anyones potential. I believe the best solutions come from empathy.
Hi Dawn! I am Lusmaia, Program Manager, at the Guild! Would love to learn what ideas were generated from this activity? Student homelessness affects 1.3 Million students across our country-- would love to learn more and share this with other communities that may be confronting this reality!
Hi Tyson Lambert ! Thank you for sharing your responses and adding the deck used during the empathy exercise! The deck was incredibly thorough. Students' home life is extremely pivotal to every aspect of their behavior at school. I am curious if any ideas came out of this session to strengthen the bridge between home and school?
Mitchell McGrath Wonderful first post! We’re so excited to have you as part of our Teachers Guild Chapters community. Thanks for sharing. My name is Lusmaia, and I recently joined the Guild. Looking forward to tracking the development of your idea throughout the year!
