Good morning my friends!
We’re all tired of Zoom meetings, but can you imagine being in 1st grade and trying to learn everything?! Today I get to chat with one of my favorite people, my sister Angie Titus, who is a 1st-grade teacher and is now in the tough place of teaching our future scientists and engineers in the middle of the pandemic.
Angie’s always poured her heart and soul into her teaching, but now she’s working to teach equity and inclusion, group dynamics, how to share, and how to read and do math, all while asking 6-year olds to sit still at a computer screen.
We had a great conversation about a ton of good resources, especially around teaching and representing people of color in STEM fields. Angie recommends you check out these books for the best advice on how to be a bubble gum brain, how to have conversations about race, and how to teach your children the art of inquiry through the hearts and minds of little girls exploring the world.

Remember to thank a teacher today. In a world turned upside down, their efforts are going to keep our next generation of scientists, engineers, artists, politicians, and master craftswomen and men on track to make the world a better place.
I hope you enjoy the conversation!
