Over the semester, we have learned, discussed, and reflected on what exactly curriculum is. Mike and Katia lead us through some challenging lessons which allowed us to grow personally and professionally as teachers. As I reflected on this class, I realized the positive impact ECS 210 truly had on me personally. I have been able to identify and become more mindful to the unsettling realities of my white privilege, place of power as a teacher, and common sense ideas are for my students. The class also allowed me to reflect on my personal experiences and turn the negative experiences into positive connections.
I am thankful for the teachings received in this class; I know they are essential to my growth as a teacher.
Here is my longer than required video of my ramblings about what resonated with me through the course.
