In this episode, we speak with David R. Rosas, an assistant principal at the Castle Bridge School in Washington Heights in New York City. David recently wrote an article for Chalkbeat titled, I’m an elementary school teacher, and I embrace critical race theory. In our conversation, David touches on the realities of CRT as an academic discipline vs. what it means to be a teacher who uses CRT to create an inclusive classroom. David has been an educator for 21 years and has worked as a teacher in grades K-7, an instructional coach, assistant principal, and principal in elementary schools.
