Bright Water- Enviro. Education and After School Coordinator
Bright Water is a Pre-K-6th-grade public charter school in North Minneapolis with a mission to provide an excellent, equitable Montessori education to an intentionally diverse student body. Our leadership's foundational approach with an intense focus on a learning community broadened to include leveraging Montessori pedagogy in collaboration with evidence-based practices, specifically, Dr. Wade Nobles' world-renowned research and pedagogy, Nsaka SunSum (Touching the Spirit). This powerful pedagogy offers a full educational experience that honors the whole child in order to combat white supremacy in education. By accounting for the absent narratives in the classroom, we are able to bring full circle the educational experiences all children deserve through an understanding of the child’s identity and experiences both culturally and racially. At Bright Water, we believe All children can be at the center of that important development, by finding their cultural and racial identity in education along with their purpose in the learning environment. **This position is part of the Minnesota Alliance With Youth Cohort. This cohort provides a learning community of 20 fellow VISTA members service projects geared toward educational equity. We provide monthly+ professional development training and additional support throughout the year.
