Teaching and Race in a Pandemic

High school teacher Arleta joins Alexandra and Lenya to discuss race and womanhood in schools and teaching environments. Topics include what has changed in teaching during COVID, if Arleta’s race or ethnicity have affected her in the workplace, and what it’s like to go through active shooter drills where her priority is to save the children over herself. Arleta is an educator and administrator at an independent charter high school that serves a diverse population of Los Angeles. She has been in the education field going on a decade and has worked in all sides of education, from the administrative side to the classroom. Arleta has seen education as an equalizer in our society and believes in its power to change lives, as it was her ticket to escaping poverty. When she's not shaping minds, she's shaping her body at the gym, hanging out with her wonderful husband, eating her way through LA, and her friends from all walks of life. -- Please **rate and review** this podcast if you enjoyed it; reviews greatly help new listeners see this podcast is worth their time.
