A space where they are cared for and encouraged. A space where they are viewed as a person with potential to do great things.
A space where they have a chance to make mistakes and grow.
A space free of preconceived notions about their abilities and their future.
A space to be.
A chance to explore.
And sometimes that space gets loud. Which is ok.
As teachers, let us remember to look beyond the skin tone, to the learner within.
