I work toward an anti bias curriculum and creating a place where the love of reading is the norm. I diligently push to create a safe space and brave space for my students. We work on being uncomfortable, challenged, and communicating. We work to understand our identity, bias, and privilege.
I am constantly learning, reading, growing, and practicing. I identify as genderqueer, non-binary. I use the pronouns they/them to identify and go by Mx. T with my learners and Tooley with my friends. I am not afraid to try something new, fail, and try again. I know mistakes are okay as do my students.
We work towards being okay with our mistakes. and having a growth mindset. We laugh and cry over good books. We put our thinking to the test with CGI mathematics.
I am thankful you stopped by. I hope that you find something that connects to you, inspires you, and challenges you.
Together we are learning and growing!
