Rowan Shafer is a third grade teacher at Morris Jeff Community School. She’s committed to teaching a social justice curriculum… which she knows can sound abstract.

“Yeah, those are easy words to say that mean a lot of things,” she says.

In this month’s Voices of Educators segment, Shafer describes one of her favorite social justice units and explains why, after years of teaching fourth grade, she switched to third.
