What does intersectional practice look like for educators and students?
For the past twenty years, as a classroom teacher in an urban setting, a university professor, and a public school district-level curriculum facilitator, I have provided intersectional offerings around literacy education, secondary literacy acquisition, mindfulness, movement, and breath in the classroom. Additionally, this work has evolved into my latest offering, mindful leadership for educators. When the leaders of our educational homes are grounded, opening, and aware--mountains move for students and teachers.
Intersectional practice in the learning environment is the integration of social-emotional skills and the cognitive domains across the content. The focus of this work student-centered instructional consulting, collaborating, and coaching that revolves around goals, skills, and domains that concretely link the "soft" skills with the academic outcomes in the classroom. This work ALWAYS begins with the educator, wherever he or she is, and we work from there.
