The impact you are making matters and is appreciated 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

I took a restoration of health sabbatical for 6 months after teaching during the beginning of the pandemic til the end of the 2021 school year. I was so emotionally burnt out & carried a lot of guilt/shame for not being able to show up for my students in September.

Listening to the podcast during that time off restored a lot of hope for me & reminded me that I’m not alone in wanting to work towards collective healing & liberation.

Congratulations on 2 years of incredible work 🎉
