Nationally-Recognized Speaker Rosetta Lee Challenges, Inspires CRS

At the heart of Rosetta Lee’s discussions about navigating identity, bias, privilege, oppression, and cultural competencies is the idea that building authentic relationships with others is essential. Perhaps it is why her workshops with CRS faculty during their recent Professional Development Day resonated so deeply: relationships and building strong community connections are also the heart of Charles River School. Ensuring that each child feels supported, safe, and seen at school helps them to engage in the classroom and grow into someone who knows themselves, understands others, and shapes the future of our diverse world with confidence and compassion.
Lee presents with honesty and humor, explaining concepts in a way that is both accessible and relatable. A nationally-recognized speaker and trainer, she helped faculty engage and discuss with each other what equity and inclusivity look like at CRS. Teachers left energized to take new ideas and practices back to their classrooms.
Lee will hold an additional in-person evening session for CRS community adults on Thursday, March 31, at 6:30 p.m. Her session will focus on why equity and inclusion work is important to the healthy identity development of all students and how we can work to build positive relationships and engage authentically and productively across our differences.
