Long time! This week I am presenting at the Private Schools with Public Purpose Conference.
“The 2019 national Private Schools with a Public Purpose Conference at The Spence School on March 7-9th will be focused on the theme Collaborating in the Spirit of Justice: On the Intersections of Equity and Service. This will be the 12th year of the PSPP conference, which draws teachers and school leaders from across the nation who are interested in service learning, equity, and summer learning programs. Our hope is to help schools envision how to partner with and support programs in their communities as a means of creating more equitable learning environments and opportunities for all students.”
I first attended this conference in 2017 when it was in Washington DC. My colleague and I held a workshop called “Sowing Seeds” about our 6th Grade Food Justice study. It was really fun and helpful to talk to like-minded colleagues about our interest in growing our students understanding of food justice.
This year I am presenting “What Feels Like Seismic Shifts” about the challenges of doing this work over multiple years and the strides that we have been able to make. 35 people are signed up! I will let you know how it goes.
