I teach. I build relationships with students.

Sarah Brookner
Minneapolis, MN

I am a white female. I grew up in a wealthy suburb of Minneapolis. My students are mostly Somali, African American and Mexican American. They all have different needs. I care deeply about all of them. Some days are hard for me to connect and relate to their experiences, which are so different than my own. But I try everyday. Some days are not about math, reading or science. They’re about helping a student in crisis. Building relationships.

    You teach? Can you count? The title was supposed to be 6 words not 7. Says a lot about the state of our educational system these days. Want to see education in this country improve; forget all the social engineering crap and common core and stike to language, mathematics & reading.
