Me and my Mum at my graduation from Fordham – I am pretty sure I learned as much from my Mum, about education and parenting. as I did when getting a Ph.D.
Parents are children’s first educator’s – I have added a page for parent resources and was really excited yesterday when talking to a friend who said she would love some suggestions for talking to her children about race. Unlike teaching there is no college course or expert on parenting – and I am certainly not claiming to be one. But I am happy to share what I have learned. I hope to add some resources, information and ideas for discussing ‘social ‘topics with children at each stage of their life. My research focused on the experience of underrepresented groups in high schools, students of color and members of the LGBTQ community. I have also had significant personal and professional experience with special education in public and private education and will share my experiences in the hope that it will help others.
