Engaging Lansing Public Schools' students with 'BEYOND Insights'
The word “excitement” only begins to capture the atmosphere on the first day of this fall’s BEYOND Insights program at MSU.
Peace on Earth
Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Joyous Kwanzaa. Happy Holidays. Season’s Greetings. It’s that time of year when people around the world celebrate this special time according to their religion or culture. It’s also that time of year when some people refuse to accept diversity and demand their way is the only way to wish someone well during the season. Peace on Earth. Amongst all the discussion and arguing, I’d like to think that's the one sentiment we can all get behind. A gunman in Sydney, a horrible massacre in Peshawar, conflicts in the Middle East, disease in Africa, threats from Sony hackers, crime in the United States—one look at the news headlines is enough to make anyone feel despair. Peace on Earth. No matter the religion, culture, political leaning, nationality, gender, economic status or any other differing factor, I think we all can agree that is a wish we’d all like granted this year.View story photos

But I see my focus as much more long-term, growing from my own public school experiences as a student of color (Black/White biracial) with a White American mother and a Black Jamaican father, as well as my years as a classroom teacher.View story photos
