    Episode 44—The Pandemic in Education 2.0 (featuring Ms. Wright)

    Leonard: "If you had one word that would describe not just you, but your purpose in life as far as you understand it right now…and you had to get it tattooed on you…what would that word be and why?"

    Elisia: "Grace. Why? You have to give yourself grace. I tend to be hard on myself, and have to remind myself to give myself grace. I’m learning as I go.”

    Join The Black Scholars Podcast and Elisia Wright (@thatswright) as we discuss how the pandemic has impacted K-12 education. Ms. Wright is a skilled elementary school teacher living in Miami, Florida. She’s a Florida A&M University graduate.

    Episode 43 — The Pandemic in Education 2.0 (featuring Dr. Kanesha L. Moore)

    "Have some compassion for yourself...do what you enjoy...do what you have to do, but make some time to do what you enjoy..." — Dr. Kanesha L. Moore

    For the first time on the show, we have an educator and a scholar who isn’t in the K-12 “hamster wheel.” Dr. Kanesha L. Moore, from Memphis, Tennessee, is a psychologist at a large public university in Texas. The Spelman College alumna has been teaching since 2012. We discuss how we have been impacted by Covid-19, the importance of mental health, self-care, etc. More importantly, we discuss how college students and professors have been impacted by the global pandemic and how we educators can bounce back despite the pandemic.

    Episode 41—America to Me Series — Episode 10: America Will Be

    Episode 41—America to Me Series — Episode 10: America Will Be

    America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the final installment of the series. On episode 10, "America Will Be” of the America to Me series, I only focus on two issues: the importance of effective school leadership and why educators should only focus on what we can control. I've enjoyed watching and analyzing this documentary and look forward to future work from these filmmakers. I'll keep an attentive eye on the progress of Oak Park and River Forest High School and that community. After all, I am a product of the Midwest.

    Episode 40—America to Me Series — Episode 9: The Invisible T-Shirt

    Episode 40—America to Me Series — Episode 9: The Invisible T-Shirt

    America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the ninth installment of the series. On episode 9, "The Invisible T-Shirt” of the America to Me series, I relate my experience attending small colleges in predominately-White towns to Kendale's college visit. I also analyze Tiara's academic struggles and a potential solution. Terrence goes to court with his mother regarding guardianship, and Ms. Stovall's Woven program is met with resistance from administration, again. Lastly, I discuss the question, "Why aren't there more Black and Brown educators?" It's not an easy answer.

     

    The next series will focus on my book, Becoming an Effective Black Educator, available via paperback or e-Book. I'm excited to discuss this content in details as it directly relates to our current conundrums in education and within our own careers. I want everyone to be successful, and I plan on giving away a few copies during this series.

    Episode 39—America to Me Series — Episode 8: Nobody Can Hold You Down

    Episode 39—America to Me Series — Episode 8: Nobody Can Hold You Down

    America to Me is a Starz docu-series. There are approximately 10 episodes that highlight Oak Park and River Forest High School in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb outside of Chicago. This episode is the eighth installment of the series. On episode 8, "Nobody Can Hold You Down” of the America to Me series, I share effective strategies to combat against student's anxiety particularly test anxiety, which is currently impacting Caroline. I also discuss Mr. Clark, one of the few Black male educators at Oak Park River Forest High School. Lastly, I ponder how educators should connect with kids like Tiara, who doesn't give her full effort in any academic sense.
