Last Saturday, January 21st, I shared my birthday with the most powerful, peaceful, and collaborative march I’ve witnessed in my lifetime. I believe in equity and acceptance and was deeply moved by the overwhelming number of individuals who marched in support of social, political, and economic issues impacting women’s lives. The Women’s March celebrated women as leaders — something you’ll hear more about from Tch in the coming weeks. However, the Women’s March wasn’t solely focused on gender.

Collaboration was key in the Women’s March because the issues which brought people together were intersectional — interconnected identities of gender, race, and class. We also collaborate daily in our schools — often in response to similar equity issues. Check out 5 Key Strategies for ELL Instruction and The Far-Reaching Benefits of Co-teaching for ELLs, and think about the impact and advantages of collective thought in reaching our English language learners. And, when working together, practicing empathy is critical to helping all students succeed. As I engage with those who have different upbringings or challenges, I’ve been focusing on understanding as opposed to judging. Classrooms rooted in empathy are welcoming places where both students and teachers feel safe.
