Becoming #BraverTogether

Who’s feeling a little tender right about now? The never-ending pandemic has brought about a shitstorm of disconnect and it’s no wonder we’re feeling dejected with many frayed ends. If some hopeless exhaustion is settling into your soul, you’re not alone. There are so many boats in this storm. The safest harbour is sometimes when we bring our ships as…

Acknowledgment Matters

I had the privilege of sitting down for a live discussion with one of my all-time favourite educators, Laurie McIntosh, to discuss the recently proposed K-6 Alberta Curriculum.

Black History 365

As February comes to an end, and Black History Month along with it, I am cognizant, today more than ever, that the work to dismantle systemic racism and oppression does not end with a month. The year that was 2020 exposed massive racial inequities that are the root cause of many societal issues on this planet. Although enslavement may feel…

5 Black Authors to read *this month

*And every month! Black history continues to be under-acknowledged and under-recognized in Canada. Few Canadians are aware that Black people were once enslaved in the territory that is now Canada or how those who fought enslavement helped to lay the foundation of Canadian society.
