I've got a free minute and I got several questions regarding my implementation of @iste standards at my school. This has literally been MONTHS of progress and since I've received inquiries, I want to share!

To begin, here is the document I created: docs.google.com/document/d/1L2…

Leadership wanted to implement ISTE wasn't exactly sure where to begin, so I created this plan.

First, you'll notice that not all standards are being implemented at once. Because, honestly, that's a LOT to take on. We are focusing on three standards per three cohorts.

I specifically chose standards we're already DOING, but could also do BETTER. I don't want this to be an additional burden on educators/students/staff after an already wild year given the pandemic and hybrid learning.

Speaking of, we'll be starting implementation NEXT year.

The first large chunk of time will be 8/2021 - 12/2021, with the second chunk of time being from 1/2021 - 6/2021.

I also specifically wanted to implement a cycle of review during administrative time bi-monthly to revisit data and practice.

As for my role as a STEM coach, I will be offering targeted support, coaching, and professional development surrounding the ISTE standards.

ISTE also offers their own professional development, which I tweeted about this morning!

And through this process, I hope that we will able to keep building on ISTE standards and awareness throughout campus.

Fingers crossed it works!

Send any and all good vibes my way! Lol I will definitely need them!!

I think it’s time to talk about what I refer to as an “equity bully.”

An “equity bully” is someone who presents themselves as someone who promotes equity, but once you get to know them they are *actually* promoting their own inequitable and bizarre agenda(s).

I’ll begin by saying equity is not something we should have to promote at all. It’s something we should embody. It’s something we should all be working toward.

However, that doesn’t happen for some folks and instead they constantly bring equity up in an inauthentic way.


A school wants to create a rewards program for student attendance. Someone hops in the conversation and claims it’s an equity issue (because it is). School asks what they should do instead, person suggests they have a *different* rewards program for grades.

Since this got some attention yesterday, here’s what happened (this will be a thread).

The man was trying to backtrack on this statement. She kept pressing on what exactly he meant when he said he hates working with females, and what the “like you” piece at the end meant. 1/
It’s important to note that my wife is one of the ONLY Black women in her very white male dominated circles.

After his backtracking, she said: “You’re not giving me the truth. You’re giving me nonsense. I need the truth. Give me the truth. You are being dishonest with me.” 2/
More backtracking and stonewalling from the man. Lots of “well, I didn’t mean it THAT way” from his side.

Then this fun interaction happened:

Kourt: You are being sexist right now.

Man: I don’t see how this is sexist. I was speaking from my feelings.

Hey @educationweek:

I’m curious as to what the rationale is for hiring this person to write an op ed for your website. Not only is she openly attacking a fellow educator, but calling social justice “crap” is alarming alongside your Black voices statements.

Oh, we are absolutely about to have some paired texts. I’ve GOT time and I hope I make you proud, @JennBinis. And also @jennthetutor because you have perfected the art of the drag.

Let’s start here: if I go on @educationweek’s Twitter account, I find this.
And yet you deliberately publish this, an article in which a white mom is complaining about the lack of white comfort in her son’s classroom. The entire article reads like a “woe is me, I’m not being centered!” piece.

You chose to publish it because...?
