Narration and Application of Educators’ Experiences with Racism in School Cultures

Existing literature regarding how educators’ experiences with microaggressions and racial bias relates to their teaching is sparse. Because of his own experience with racism and bias in the educational system, Jackson (2015) discussed how his experiences affect how he teaches today. Cuevas (2016) has dedicated his professional expertise to developing teaching methodologies and curricula to engage Latino students. Still, significant personal experiences of Black K-12 educators with racial bias in their school cultures are particularly an under-studied area (Priest, et al., 2014) Thus, there exists a gap in the literature regarding how Black educators who have experienced embedded racism in their school environment may have altered their professional practices.
