In this narrative you will see my journey in becoming a Critical Social Justice Educator. In addition to this, you will see how I made my decision to become a teacher along with the continued development in learning the craft. As this narrative continues, you will be introduced to my three focus students in a detailed manner as well as learn about the community in which I served during the 2019 - 2020 school year. The purpose of this narrative is to track both my and my students’ documented growth throughout the year, make connections to different elements that effect a student’s education, and to stress the importance of being a Critical Social Justice Educator. Once you have completed this narrative, you will come to see my stance in the importance of preparing our students academically as well as socially so they are able to thrive in the world in which we live and be successful in all that they do.
