What About Fall?

When Boston University announced that they are considering reopening in January 2021, I couldn’t help but wonder: when will we decide if we are going online for the fall semester? Up until now, it’s felt inconceivable to even consider it for a variety of obvious…

What Can White Teacher Educators Do?

Part of my work as a teacher educator is to continually educate myself about resisting the reproduction of racism in the classroom. Part of my work as a white teacher educator is to find opportunities to share what I learn. This post is an expression of…

Gendering the Policy-Practice Gap

I gave a guest lecture today in a Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Course, “Women: Images and Realities.” What a neat experience. Although my work as a professor is always infused in some way by thinking about gender, it is not the main focus of my…
