Beyond Differences Learning Community (LC) is a growing community of educators coming together to navigate challenges, share resources & ideas, celebrate wins, embrace mistakes/ failures, and take our teaching practices to the next level to transform our classrooms.
Our goal is that educators will come together to learn, share, and build confidence in their Social and Emotional Learning (SEL), Mental Health, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) knowledge and practices to increase student-to-student connection, promote a healthy sense of identity, foster student belonging, and position students as leaders in SEL and Equity Work.
