By Kimberly Cullen

The morning of Monday, February 1 was a complete shock to the system. I awoke at 5:00 AM to a phone call from our Director of HSSE informing me a military coup had occurred just a few hours earlier. I remember taking my phone from my ear at the end of the call in a state of disbelief. Dealing with COVID had been an incredible challenge as it had been for schools around the world. Now this? What do you do during a coup, especially in the midst of a pandemic?... more

What have you left behind?
By Emily Meadows

I've run into a lot of folks who mistakenly believe that their internal acceptance of LGBTQ+ people is sufficient for inclusion. Kids can't read teachers' minds, however, so a classroom without LGBTQ+ representation looks uninviting, regardless of the teacher's internal feelings.... more
By Shwetangna Chakrabarty

Microaggressions are like dementors, from the Harry Potter series: they suck away the happiness, ambition and zeal to succeed from people of colour and minorities. This silent killer leaves them with no other option than to perish silently, never raising a voice or even trying to make a difference... more
By Matthew Piercy

You can sum up this school year in a variety of ways. However, please don't use the word "unprecedented." The challenge isn't what to say about the past 7 or 8 months - the challenge is how will we end it. Punctuation marks might be the best way to frame this finish... more
Global Book Reviews

By Margriet Ruurs

Books truly can be a window to the world. While reading, you can live in another country, learn what life is like in a different culture while discovering both the world and yourself. These books shed light on a variety of settings and situations and help to create awareness... more
