WE SUPPORT TEACHERS!

Serving Educators In Our Community

Black Teachers Meet

PURPOSE:

Black Teachers Meet (BTM) is a space for black educators to congregate and support one another on their journey through the education system. Studies have shown that black teachers play a crucial role in the lives of ALL students, especially students of color from marginalized communities. Their mere presence in the classroom has the potential to change the trajectory of their students’ lives.  

 

Unfortunately, this large role can be daunting to many black educators and oftentimes leaves them feeling depleted. At Black Teachers Meet, our aim is to alleviate challenges so that we can keep committed educators in the classroom. We intend to create a community that is safe, familiar and loving so that black teachers can thrive for their students and in their personal lives.

At Strickland Educational Services, our main priority is to provide teachers, students, and parents with the necessary resources and support to ensure a successful educational experience. We are committed to serving our community by offering a wide range of educational programs, resources, and support services.
