Hello Educators!


Although I’ve been a teacher for over 15 years, it is only truly in the last two school years that I have paid close attention to bringing anti-racism into the classroom. Prior to joining MAR, I thought I knew what racism was, and I was certain that I wasn’t causing harm or condoning racism in my classroom and in my school. I now realize that there is no middle ground; if you aren’t actively doing the work to be anti-racist, to decolonize your classroom, then you are part of the systemic racism that BIPOC students face daily.


As part of my learning and unlearning, I have been exploring and searching for resources that teachers can use. Here is a list, to get you started, of things I’ve found helpful. I realize this list isn’t exhaustive, so if you have a suggestion for a great resource for anti-racist educators, please let me know and I will add it in! Thanks!
