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.
