It’s hard to imagine a time when our teachers were asked to do so much with so little support. Join me, LaQuisha Hall, Maryland State Education Association President Cheryl Bost, and others at 6pm for this Critical Conversation on teaching in 2020. Register Now
Next Event: Teaching in 2020 — Stretched Thin and Taken for Granted
On Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 6 p.m. I am hosting a Critical Conversation about the new and continued challenges that teachers are facing during this time of crisis. Our teachers are stretched far too thin and the critical role they play in the future of every community is too often taken for granted. Please register now, and I’m excited to connect and engage with you on this journey.
In moments of crisis, leaning on community and bringing people together to find answers becomes more critical than ever. That was a big theme of my latest book “Five Days,” a kaleidoscope account of diverse perspectives in the protests that surrounded the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore in 2015.
It is in that vein that I am excited to start this series of virtual convenings I’m calling “Critical Conversations.”
This series will bring together community leaders and everyday Marylanders to discuss the challenges and opportunities that we are all facing . I want to continue the conversations that began with my new book “Five Days,” to build on the work and spirit of telling hard truths and creating collective action that have defined my life, and to find solutions for the issues that we face right now.
I’m a proud Marylander. I live in Baltimore with my wife and our two children. These issues are my issues. They’re our issues.
