Racial Equity Courses for Teachers and Administrators

Our racial equity courses will help teachers and administrators to address racial justice when school starts, whether we start face-to-face or virtually and whether they plan to address race or it comes up spontaneously.

We have teamed up with the University of Iowa to provide teacher and administrator license renewal credits for these courses. If you do not wish to receive a certificate for these courses, you can save the license renewal fee. 

If you work outside the state of Iowa, we are happy to share the syllabus so you can get approval for relicensure in your location. Contact us at circe @ westwinded .com.
