One of the challenges of teaching in the current political climate is simply staying in teaching. Many teachers are fighting for fair funding and pushing back against unjust practices. In all this, it is easy to lose sight of how this work can be sustainable in the long term. We focus this workshop on remaining committed to the reasons we are in education through supporting each other as a community. We will be spending time reflecting, considering what social justice mathematics can (and does) look like, enjoying time to just play with math, and learning about strategies that will help us continue to advocate for students for years to come.
