In this video, fierceness is discussed as a powerful strength that we, as educators, can harness to protect and fight for our students. To harness this internal force means to do the WORK of critical self-reflection to deeply understand where we STAND on issues related to equity, social justice, and inclusive practices.
As educators we choose and are called upon to do this WORK and, in essence, become spiritual warriors. The archetype of “warrior” invokes both protector and fighter. In this video this archetype is discussed in relation to our own critical self-work and the ways we choose when and how to take a stand as advocates for our students and their families.
With much love,
