The Art of Troublemaking: A Teacher Unravels Racism | El arte de crear problema: Una maestra desenmaraña el racismo (ROW)

Olga Lacayo, with Eliana Elias, Edited by Margie Carter and Ann Pelo

The Art of Troublemaking tells the story of a teacher confronted by racism in her early childhood classroom, and her decision to lean into the reality, rather than avoid or deny it. Thus begins her journey with colleagues, the children in her class, her coach and co-conspirator, her teaching community, and larger professional development circles. This is a story of perseverance, strength and hope, as Olga navigates entrenched ways of thinking and behaving, drawing strength from her cultural heritage and her urgent desire to create a world where all are welcomed – children and teachers alike – in the fullness of their being.

 

The Art of Troublemaking is part of the Reimagining our Work. Use the ROW collection to discover how early childhood educators in the field are reimagining their work and thinking alongside children.

 

El arte de crear problemas cuenta la historia de una profesora confrontada por el racismo en su salón de clases de educación preescolar y su decisión de acercarse a la realidad, en vez de evadirla o negarla. Así comienza su travesía con sus colegas, los niños en su clase, su instructora y cómplice, su comunidad docente y círculos de desarrollo profesional más grandes. Esta es una historia de perseverancia, fuerza y esperanza, mientras Olga navega arraigadas maneras de pensar y actuar, tomando fuerza de su herencia cultural y su urgente deseo de crear un mundo donde todos son bienvenidos – tanto niños como profesores – en la totalidad de su ser.
