“Sometimes you don’t even know you’re missing something unless you surrender and become center dint he process of understanding what is happening and begin to untangle the questions, emotions, fears and uncertainties. Teaching has been so different this year and I found myself exploring my life’s passion and purpose in ways I’ve never done before.  My students and the art of teaching are one of mu greatest loves and I did not wan the first that ignites me each day to burn out (no pun intended). In the midst of feeling lost, through conspiring, the universe and the incredible Gog I serve found it fitting for me to cross paths with these two books: “The Three Mothers by @annastea_honesty and “The Spirit of Our Work” by @drdillard. I (re)member who I am and will continue to answer the call and push my scholars forward so they can truly shape our world for the better!”

“This book is sacred. Poetic. No matter who we are, especially if we are educators to Black folks, there are deep wells of wisdom, truth and transformative healing here.  This is a call to remembrance of Black brilliance, Black love, Black joy. The profession is under duress. Reforms will not help by transformations are overdue. (Re)membering is made up of five related processes:  (Re)searching; (Re)visioning; (Re)cognizing; (Re)presenting; and (Re)claiming. Dr. Cynthia Dillard says: “Our healing as educators sounds like a whisper.” Read the book to grasp what this means. It includes a moving forward by Dr. Bettina Love. I would’ve gifted copies to mom and momma Alice (our ancestor Black women educators whose lessons carry me and mine).”

“I started Dr. @cynthiabdillard’s THE SPIRIT OF OUR WORK this morning during my planning period and the introduction has me crying and clapping, often at the same time!  To be seen for the whole of who I am and Whose I am is an honor. Black women educators: This is THEE book.”

“Grateful for elder scholars like @drdillard who provide guideposts and inspiration for folks like me.  I am a teacher at heart, and I want to (re)member this gift to be in service to myself and my people. I am on my way. AND it’s an audiobook! Winning.”

“Shout out to @cynthiabdillard for this great work. I needed to read today that Black women “know that our (re)search will help us see ourselves and our work more clearly – as teachers, as women, as humans.” #thespiritofourwork”
