A magnetic force fills my thoughts; a polar opposite field that draws me away from my desired ability to make a difference. My passion has not festered. Rather, I feel trapped within the confines of a rigid system that is not equitable.
The achievement gap continues to divide students, placing them into cookie-cutter classes based on their socioeconomic backgrounds that determine their fates. Education appears to be a dysfunctional system that plays the role of a superior spectacle that spews a false narrative of positive results.
However, although I may feel such disappointment in the system, I continue to strive towards change.
I want to be a part of the solution, rather than spewing disdain.
I am not perfect.
I am an educator, learner, and dreamer.
I am not only hoping and commenting from a distance.
I am working towards making a difference.
