Dear Elementary Teacher Education community,

Facing disruption and uncertainty around COVID-19, communities worldwide are making unprecedented decisions to change the way we engage in everyday activities. Proactive measures by otherwise healthy people are important supportive factors for members of our communities who are disabled and immunocompromised. And still, enduring factors like food insecurity, homelessness, and the absence of physical or other forms of safety are significant concerns for many community members as our institutional operations change. Many of us who teach children and/or adults are managing competing feelings about public health and safety and long-held beliefs about teaching, learning, and community. We are finding ways to adapt.

Adaptation can be disorienting. As we leave field experience and student teaching sites and prepare for online/alternative instruction, we have opportunities to recalibrate our work toward the 2019-2020 Elementary Teacher Education vision:

Graduates from our elementary education programs recognize schools as places for engaging children and communities in justice-oriented work. They are deeply engaged with children, communities, colleagues, and the field of education as advocates and leaders. Our graduates value an ethos of vulnerability, recognizing their knowledge and pedagogical skills as wide-ranging, ever-evolving, and in collaboration with students. They are part of a growing movement that disrupts the status quo in public education and that works to build a just future.

I invite each of you to invest some of your time in expanding your knowledge base, deepening your engagement, and building your advocacy practices. The Google Sheet here has a separate tab for each of these activities, with spaces to share resources in each category and to begin organizing collective advocacy efforts. This shared document is public, editable, and available for all members of the Elementary Teacher Education community. I imagine the purpose and structure of this document will also shift as circumstances do; please check back regularly. Thanks to each of you for your commitment to our work together in Elementary Teacher Education.

Annie Mason
