Sustaining Teachers of Color Through the Pipeline: Overcoming Barriers to the Profession
Lynette Mawhinney, Ph.D
The purpose of this workshop is for participants to understand the social, political, and systemic issues that preservice and in-service teachers face with the purpose to provide a critical, analytical, and asset-based lens to working with teachers of color. First, the workshop will focus on the state of teachers of color in the profession and the various microaggressions they may face on the job. Then, the workshop will then pan out to a larger, institutional lens and groupthink on how schools can successfully overcome barriers to teachers.
