EQUITY WITHIN THE CLASSROOM CONFERENCE
This year's Equity Within the Classroom Conference is being hosted by Grand Valley State Univesrity. It's always an honor and privilege to be asked to share experiences in these spaces. Today, I had the opportunity to do so through the lens of a partner with my alma mater and the University of Michigan's GEAR UP Program Staff (full-time staff and student leaders). (GEAR UP is sponsored through Michigan's Office of Academic Multicultural Initiatives.)
Our youth are brilliant--it's up to us to nurture, teach, guide, challenge, and encourage them. They can, they are, they will.
