Second only to parents, I believe teachers play an important role in unleashing the potential of girls. Dedicated teachers not only equip girls with literacy and numeracy skills, they

  • Raise awareness about their rights and how gendered expectations constrain their opportunities

  • Empower them with life skills to make and act on strategic life choices

  • Provide venues for girls to make their voices heard

“Every child deserves a champion – an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection and insists that they become the best that they can possibly be.” – Rita F. Pierson, Educator

Thank you for being a champion. Here are my FREE RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS to assist you in discussing gender issues, gender discrimination, self-esteem, among others.
