I rarely post opinions outside of the subject of early childhood music & movement. If you know me, you know as a teacher I holding the belief that’s each parent, each child, each person has their own path. But right now with all that is happening in our country and our world it seems wrong to stay silent. I can’t/won’t tell anyone what to believe or do but I will say this... I am committed to provide a safespace- I see you, I hear you, I value you, and I practice those things with deeds.
And I want you to know, I will do my part to end racism!
