Jennifer, thanks so much. Unfortunately, I must leave until later but I wanted to add an article I wrote last years tht may be a good reference: 8/18/21 Borders to Bridges: Awakening Critical Consciousness. Radical Teacher, 120, 32-41. https://doi.org/10.5195/rt.2021.871

too full--can't add.
Lou Anne Rossdeutscher

The jam board is full, so I want to say that the strength of these people is fantastic.
Elizabeth Goulette
44:44
I'm not trying to be rude but it is difficult to listen to the students' audio while you are talking.
Laura Stusser-McNeil
45:19
question: can we get permission to use these spoken stories as listening activities in our ESOL classrooms?
Jessica Lander
45:19
My apologies you can also read the stories or mute me for a moment.

We would love for you to use the website stories and Reimagining Migrations questions
Kathy Stamos
46:23
So sad to hear about how students see their accent as a source of shame rather than part of their identity. :(
YESENIA RIVERA
46:43
Joylyn Ndungu story is very similar to mines. I was ridiculed and bullied when I had to do oral presentations for my class. My accent was seeing as an impairment even later as an adult in the workplace.
Mihyun Han
46:45
I listened to Thanh Lam’s story and it resonates with me because he said he has had so many questions both in Vietnam and in the US and is still exploring them. I was thinking when newcomer students like him get sufficient and effective language support at school they could navigate a big change in their life easily getting more answers to their own questions!
Anne Eden
46:49
I got a few students from the unaccompanied refugee minor program that transferred from Lowell. . .I wonder if any participated :)
Rona Johnson
46:50
Green: I really connected with Karla Torres Gonzalez (English...My Terrible Fear) as she learned to focus on learning and speaking English without worry about what others thought.
Jwokamer Debock
46:52
I can relate a lot to The Unseen Battle, having came from Kenya in 2nd grade being made fun of and going through the similar transition.
Becky White
47:32
I can relate to the sense of loss losing your primary language to fit in with American culture.
Lesley Bunnell
47:36
@Vania - I completely related to the story bc being in a new space so young, you're left to fend for yourself over what seems like a simple instruction is so complex
Charlespippi Barbieri
47:37
Yea- this is the essential “glue" that ALL students have in common- I do not like to call myself an ESL Teacher, more of a Cultural Awareness Resource,
Elizabeth Goulette
47:40
It is powerful to hear the students' describe their stories
Grace-Ann Fogah
47:43
Every immigrant student has a story to tell. Not all get to learn English prior to coming here, but it requires great empathy on our part when teaching/helping them to develop self-confidence. -English...My Terrible Fear

Off topic - if one’s parents were both born in a foreign county & thechild is born in US, that child is first generation. If both grandparents were born in foreign country & both parents were born in US the child is 2nd generation immigrant.
Angela Abdoo
01:09:11
Oops,
Angela Abdoo
01:10:42
If both grandparents were born in foreign country the grandchild is 2nd generation
Jatinder Kaur

NO Guns at all. GUNs are for Military/Army only not for the civilians. People are not getting this simple, but important idea. When children are killed with guns, it made me upset and very sad. So, just stop guns.
Ray Andrus
01:12:51
Guns aren't the only weapons used. Only the ones politicized.
Martha Strickland
01:20:49
In addition to equipping teachers, we need more empowering of the immigrant/refugee parents and families to address issues. You may find my book interesting: Composing Storylines of Possibilities: Immigrant and Refugee Families Navigating School (Family School Community Partnership Issues) shorturl.at/dejp8

Kathleen McGourthy
01:23:02
I'm wondering if these types of unfair practices are happening in just certain areas of the country?
Heidi Baildon
01:23:05
No
Vincent Casasco
01:23:15
Given the amount of violence in schools, or possibility of violence, yes we do.
Itzel Morales
01:23:16
What kind of officers did you say? Didn't catch that
Ray Andrus
01:23:17
I think SROs are a great addition to schools. We have several and they are invaluable to student relationships and safety of our school.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
01:23:21
NO. we need more counselors, not SROS
Christopher Ball
01:23:25
We need them because we never know who outside the school may have bad intentions but accountability for said officers is very important.
Victoria Gomez de la Torre
01:23:31
SROs should be part of community building in the schools, They have become a punitive force
Phil Coddaire
01:23:42
As a school Admin, yes they are crucial members of the school community
Kay A DeLaney
01:23:42
At my school, our SRO is bilingual, and I introduce my Spanish speaking ELL students to him to be an advocate for them.
Anne Eden
01:23:44
We need resource PEOPLE but a uniformed officer does more harm than good. We had a great officer who was Salvadoran, respected by one group of students. . .but the students from other backgrounds didn't always feel the same way.
Karin Gargone
01:23:45
Yes, with adequate training.
Pam Hutson
01:23:50
Yes, in my experience the SRO's have been very helpful in my schools.
Joel Lemus
01:23:56
We have a great SRO who works well with our admin, counselors and is very friendly with our students.
Nancy Schmitt
01:24:00
We have them in Troy, Mi--- but they never carry guns, and they are highly trained to work with students - not discipline them
Kay A DeLaney
01:24:01
We do need many more counselors.
Lou Anne Rossdeutscher
01:24:03
Training is everything!
Rachel Soule
01:24:03
I think they do more harm than good
Gloribel Gonzalez
01:24:07
I agree definitely necessary to work with our families and staff
Alan Rodriguez
01:24:26
SROs should improve the security of the school. They should NOT get involved in student behavior
Mary Angie Salva-Ramirez
01:24:35
more counselors
Rachel Soule
01:24:43
Not at all!!
Anne Eden
01:24:44
Not at all! They should be there just to help with legal issues if they come up!
Nancy Schmitt
01:24:54
In Troy, Mi they are not used to discipline students.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
01:24:55
Not at all! Misbehavior is an opportunity to teach, not to punish.
Serena Lau-Brazell
01:24:59
SROs should NOT be used to address behaviors or act as a disciplinarian.
Revae Bostwick
01:25:01
I think only if there is violent student behavior, then I would like the SRO to be involved.
Victoria Gomez de la Torre
01:25:14
No, they shouldn't unless behavior puts ppl in danger
Shauna Carter
01:25:28
Teachers should not rely on SROs for misbehavior or discipline unless there is a law being broken. Police are law enforcement, not school rules enforcement.
Mary Angie Salva-Ramirez
01:25:35
to deal with dangerous behavior
Rachel Soule
01:25:37
Early interactions with law enforcement set students down that path -- school to prison pipeline
Serena Lau-Brazell
01:25:43
SROs should also be trained annually in the de-escalation processes such as CPI or Safety Care.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
01:25:48
Yes, if the behavior is so serious someone is in danger we may need the police. Not necessarily an SRO.
Hana Prashker
01:25:49
SROs can help with replationships for students who may not have a positive role model in their lives. I have seen this happen.
Kay A DeLaney
01:26:06
SRO's need to work within their job description and act as al ally for student's success. They do not always need to appear as a negative to the school. Relationships.
Lesley Bunnell
01:26:21
Misbehavior isn't criminal we criminalize students in order to manage the root issues
Federico Salas-Isnardi
01:26:24
People in ther countries react dumbfounded when they hear of police IN schools.
Nancy Schmitt
01:26:30
They must be highly trained and really enjoy working with teenagers!
Angela Abdoo
01:26:41
Technically SROS role In the setting I taught they were like counselors, listening to children, & being good role model.
Jennifer Bondy
01:27:28
Thank you for the insightful responses, everyone! We appreciate you sharing your expertise and experiences!
Lesley Bunnell
01:28:09
SROs should be supportive and engaged in education, not simply enforcement - that creates community
Anne Eden
01:28:34
We need to look at restorative practices that help re-integrating youth if/when they've made mistakes. I've never seen SROs do restorative work, that's just not their training.
Jennifer Bondy
01:29:00
Thank you, all!

Unfortunately, Denzil, I feel police in schools are making immigrant children feel LESS safe rather than more.

We always emphasize that info about a culture is just a "door in" -- not to be confused with truly understanding individual we are working with
Jalene Tamerat
01:44:41
@Anita Absolutely!
Gloribel Gonzalez
01:45:26
agree 100%
Anne Eden
01:46:07
I would love to know if there is any research/literature/training that deals with equity work with immigrant students of color. There are so many issues with students who come to a place where they suddenly are in the minatory or assumed to be XYZ .
Aidan Lin
01:46:14
Questions for Jalene or Patrick? Post them here now!
Doris Athineos
01:46:59
@Anne Eden: I totally agree.
Alaisa Grudzinski
01:49:18
Yes, Dr. Tamerat!!! Funds of Knowledge & Critical Pedagogy are tools for educators to teach and learn WITH their students!
Tina Kern
01:50:02
Before you can teach our ELLs, especially SLIFES, we have to form a connection, invest time into knowing them, form a classroom community and a safe environment so they can learn. Then learning can take place.
Alaisa Grudzinski
01:53:01
I think that Bree Picower’s latest book, titled Reading, Writing and Racism would be a great start!
Ginger Narum
01:53:03
SLIFES?
Ariana Moir

Ana Lima

SLIFES-students with limited or interrupted formal education
Anita Barker
01:55:56
Some of the refugee HS students in our Afterschool program are resistant to participating in activities that focus on culture and life experiences of their countries of origin either because they were young enough when first came to US that have little knowledge or recollection of country of origin and/or are less willing to "go there" given previous sometimes traumatic experiences that they or their parents may not want to share because not yet ready.
Adam Strom
01:58:21
comparing transnational experiences can be wonderful ways to promote respectful curioisity
Denzil Mohammed
02:00:36
Type your questions here in the chat box for our speakers!
Omar Serna
02:01:08
Yes! Transnational Funds of Knowledge! I recently published a chapter where we discuss this idea https://www.taylorfrancis.com/chapters/edit/10.4324/9781003191575-11/gone-south-applying-anzalduan-frameworks-metonymy-metaphor-mythologies-understand-language-transnational-youth-steve-daniel-przymus-josé-omar-serna-gutiérrez
Tina Kern
02:01:15
Yes, SLIFES have so many experiences that they bring to the classroom!
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:01:30
What is your answer to those who push back saying we need to use OUR culture not theirs, be responsive to our experience because they (the immigrants) are here and need to "fit" in.
Ariana Moir
02:01:49
From @Omar: Yes! Transnational Funds of Knowledge! I recently published a chapter where we discuss this idea https://www.taylorfrancis.com/chapters/edit/10.4324/9781003191575-11/gone-south-applying-anzalduan-frameworks-metonymy-metaphor-mythologies-understand-language-transnational-youth-steve-daniel-przymus-josé-omar-serna-gutiérrez
Denzil Mohammed
02:01:56
Three minutes left.
Serena Lau-Brazell
02:02:40
@federico: I'd inquire more about what they mean by "our" culture since the US is made up of SO many different cultures.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:04:48
@Serena, I am referring to the typical voice of mostly white conservative educators who think White culture IS American Culture.
Denzil Mohammed
02:05:34
Wrap up.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:05:35
YES! I lived in two different dictatorships. When I speak of the signs that concern me, many people open their eyes for the first time.
Lou Anne Rossdeutscher
02:06:45
We saw this talking to educators in Cuba
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:08:49
YES, @Adam. Historical perspective is missing altogether.

My students, families, and I have to deal with negative behaviors from office staff and a few administrators and teachers.
JEANNETTE DOUMBE DOUMBE
02:18:53
No late than 2months ago , I signed up to help immigrants with ESL and was under estimated a white teacher . So even educators of colors are fustrated. about
Maya Takase-Kay
02:26:12
This is a fascinating topic. I have observed this in my experience as an educator. Teachers who appreciate diversity but don't take the time to educate themselves about the differences in the races that make up their school.
Lou Anne Rossdeutscher
02:28:11
Not just in education--it's pervasive!
Maya Takase-Kay
02:28:34
As an Asian American, 2nd generation immigrant educator who is multilingual, I am hyper aware of the "races' in my classes but have had to accept that other educators may not be.
Alan Rodriguez
02:29:46
I hear from colleagues * I don’t see color * and I don’t really know how to respond. It seems that they mean well but are unaware of their racism
Kathleen McGourthy
02:30:24
Yes Alan! How do we respond to that?
Ariana Moir
02:30:47
From Kathleen: Yes Alan! How do we respond to that?
Serena Lau-Brazell
02:31:55
@alan: i feel like people say this to mean “I'm not racist because I don't see color.”
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:32:22
Dorothy Height, Civil Rights Leader, used to say that she wanted us to SEE her color. She would say, you cannot ignore the color of my skin. If you pretend you don't see color you don't see me.
Alan Rodriguez
02:32:31
Agreed.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:32:33
(I am paraphrasing, of course.)
Serena Lau-Brazell
02:33:13
@federico: YES!
Shelly Page
02:33:19
There needs to be a safe place to be able to talk about what we think/believe, and acknowledge that we want to learn, to "try out" new ideas for us. But that kind of space can be hard to find when it is driven from the top down.

It takes courage to challenge racism
Jatinder Kaur
02:41:47
Teach students that there is One Race - Human Race.
elaine pierce
02:42:04
I'm a new ESL teacher and longtime Museum docent. In our museum teaching on global art history, there was a strong bias through both commission and omission on cultural superiority, with Euro-American cultures predominating. There was no institutional awareness of this until we volunteers made a lot of noise about it. Still very much a work in progress.
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:42:51
I find that what is useful is not necessarily to have a definition but to agree on what definition the community wants to use.
Alan Rodriguez
02:43:36
@jatinder. That is the Science. But unfortunately human nature does not often follow science
Federico Salas-Isnardi
02:44:18
Even among those of us who think "we know" there is no complete agreement. So it is better to engage in a conversation and agree on our own definition of these terms and work from there.
Rachel Soule
02:44:33
Often, online resources and images are easy to find with white subjects/characters and trickier to find with POC subjects. This can lead to class material not representing our student body. Would that be an example of cultural racism?
Rona Johnson
02:44:46
I notice that it is a topic that generally gets ignored in education. Another trend that I have noticed as an ESL teacher is that the majority of my students' parents have listed their child's ethnicity as white when it is clearly not. It makes me sad that they do not represent themselves with pride in their color...
Grace-Ann Fogah
02:45:23
Speaking of dress codes, another sensitive/controversial topic is that of hairstyles...
Adriana Rigoni

As a school counselor, my work is done in private and its hard to learn how to improve my practice. . .unless my student are brave enough to discuss this with me. I had a brave student call me out on something that GREATLY impacted my work. I was hurt at first, but went on to really have a great relationship with this student and thanked her for your contribution to my reflection and practice.
Shelly Page
02:46:14
After listening to the sessions this morning I feel like this is an overwhelming task. I can't quickly change my racism, and is the "informed community" patient with those who are growing and learning?? Do we start from the top or must it start from the bottom? Does it start with small groups simply talking openly about our biases and actively pursuing ways to live outside that?
Kathy Stamos
02:47:08
Many of my adult immigrant students use the word "American" to describe white people only. I'm constantly emphasizing that there are so many different types of Americans. Part of learning language is learning appropriate, specific descriptors.
Nancy Bontreger
02:47:12
I work with adult Education students and many adults list themselves as white Hispanic students. So maybe it depends on the chooses that are given.
Gloribel Gonzalez
02:47:41
How can we address concerns on behalf of my families to our Principal that there are concerns regarding racism in our school that includes her secretary and assistant principal?
Lida Moore
02:48:23
I think Anne's point is so well expressed. If we can be willing to be open to learning from different viewpoints and if we can kindly help others to understand our point of view or a different perspective, then we can be respectful and help others to maybe change their perspectives. We need to model this for our students so they will be more open to listening to different perspectives and cultures.
Jwokamer Debock
02:48:39
Yes Gloribel! I struggle with that as well!
Alan Rodriguez

Revae Bostwick
02:51:31
@Nancy - I have found that to be an issue on enrollment forms in schools, hospitals, etc. -- we often have white, black, or Asian as choices on many of our forms, without the option to choose multiple or "other."

Right. Even many African educators will tell you they were not "Black" in Africa. that become an issue when they came to the USA.
Laura Stusser-McNeil

So true—college wide, it's classic demographics. For our dept, we need/want country/language/years in US...not in synch with entire institution
