Making sure schools are a supportive place for Black children and their ideas and identities is an immensely important role for Black educators. Meet Becky Peterson, who does just that as an educator in the Madison Metropolitan School District and at Edgewood College.
“Black Excellence in education means nurturing young people’s unique gifts and talents. Black Excellence in education also means loving the extraordinary contributions of Black folks in the community. Future generations will have Black changemakers in the community, creating opportunities for our youth to excel.”
