Now is a perfect time for all of us to take time for introspection where we identify, name, and document our experiences of the past 12 months, and harness the power of those lessons learned. The experiences and reflections of our students, teachers, parents, and families of color can serve as guides for how we can better serve our students in the coming months when they return to their classrooms on campus. The Lifting our Voices Field Guides are designed to make that readjustment both possible and successful by capitalizing on the lessons learned in 2020 and 2021.
