Teaching Tolerance on Twitter

LCPS Teachers, what books would you recommend to Teaching Tolerance to support teaching the hard history of slavery in the U.S.? “Teaching #hardhistory requires help. Now, we need yours. We're creating a list of books to support educators who are teaching about American slavery—and we're welcoming your recommendations.”

A treasure of a book for all ages, celebrating diversity and inclusion. Thank you, Jacqueline Woodson #LCPSDiversity

Why Teachers Must Fight Their Own Implicit Biases

"Why Teachers Must Fight Their Own Implicit Biases" from Education Week. Even before teachers get to know their students, they have already formed assumptions about them—and low expectations can set students up for failure, writes Melissa Garcia.

8th Grade Students interested in attending the Academies of Loudoun should note these dates that are quickly approaching. #lcps #lcpsclassof2023

What is the “Belief Gap”?

What is the belief gap? Consider the power of a teacher believing in you. The Belief Gap is the gap between what poor and minority students are actually capable of achieving and the low expectations society holds for them.

Sew Fly Sky

@ChairRandall is a former Chair of MSAAC. Let's join her in celebrating creativity and determination. #BelieveInYouth

Last night was the best ever! When my mom first told me Mrs. Randall wanted me to make her an outfit I was shocked. I had never made an outfit for anyone but myself but I wasn’t gonna turn down the opportunity! After meeting her and learning her style, I sketched what I thought would be perfect for her. She loved the sketch! We decided on colors and then I used my time in California to find the perfect fabric and notions for her design. She LOVED IT! I am so honored that she took the chance to trust me to deliver her outfit for such an important night. I knew all of Loudoun County would be watching and I was determined to make her shine! Thank you Chair Phyllis Randall for believing in me! Thank you for my letter of recognition and appreciation, and thank you for my first dollar! I will always cherish this project!

Feel free to share!

[05/24/18]   "Dear Mr. Fisher,

[05/23/18]   "Dear Mr. Fisher,
