What is Equitable Teaching?

It is a mindset really. It is how we are providing equity and opportunity to students of all abilities and we are sharing that approach with you. It doesn’t matter if you are a new educator or have been working in education for decades anyone can have an Equitable Teaching Mindset.

I only have a few years until retirement, why would I worry about Equitable Teaching now?

Well, as we all know, it doesn’t matter if it is your first year or your twenty-fifth year, what you do as a teacher impacts student success. So why not end your career making the biggest difference possible in the lives of your students!

I am a special education teacher/paraprofessional/specialist/administrator/parent, is Equitable Teaching for me?

Yes! Equitable Teaching is a mindset, a way of approaching education. General education teachers need support to ensure that they are accessible to the learning outcomes and inclinations of every student in their classroom and students need the support of their educational team. The success of students is highly dependent on the likemindedness and collaboration of educational teams.

Are the Resources for Equitable Teaching really free for me to use?

Yes! Equitable Teaching is our passion and we have always led with the mentality of “What is best for students?”.  Therefore, the more ways we can support teachers that choose to have this teaching mindset the more students will benefit.  It’s a win, win! We invite you to join the Equitable Teaching Community via Facebook and subscribe to receive emails to stay up-to-date as new resources become available.
