As an educator, what is our responsibility when navigating how and when to include parents in our curriculum?
It's easy to assume that since we are the authority figures, it is our role to impart knowledge and wisdom onto families. In our conversation with Ana De Hoyos O'Connor, we talk about how educators need to dance with parents so they can honor the lived experiences of the families who provide the context for the children we care for.
We also talk about how educators can incorporate fun questions into the curriculum to help center that lived experience.
