I grew up with privilege. I never had to worry about my family being divided or even judged due to our country of origin. As I think back on the events of the past week, I empathize with the diverse group of students who attend school in my district — the most diverse school district in the Seattle Metro Area. Many students are frightened. Caught between being a kid and worrying for their families, these students take refuge in our schools — places of acceptance, love, and respect.

Watch as Faiza, a Yemeni immigrant, discusses the importance of her cultural identity, and consider how you can work to embrace your students' narratives. Embracing differences includes so much more than ethnic background; it includes gender, abilities, interests, family structures, etc. And differentiating for each of these groups, while challenging, is necessary to create an environment in which each student thrives. This week, Meg Richard speaks to the importance of differentiation while giving some ideas on how that might look within NGSS. As an educator, embracing student differences, whether in identity or ability, is truly an act of love.

With love,
