Representation Matters in ECFE

Representation Matters in ECFE

When students see themselves, their racial identities, and their lived experiences reflected in their learning, they feel valued and affirmed, which can lead to positive outcomes in their social-emotional and academic development.

A tangible example of this commitment to equity was demonstrated by Shanyn Hill, an Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE) teacher at the Central Education Center, who recently had the dolls in her classroom measured to make hijabs. Students play with these dolls in the dramatic play areas.

This small (yet significant) step shows how little efforts can make a huge difference in creating a safe and inclusive space where children can grow and thrive. It also demonstrates the commitment of our Early Learning program staff to our District's equity policy and the dedication of our educators to provide culturally and racially informed learning experiences for our students and families.
