We are excited to announce that this session will be facilitated by Hannah Assefa who currently teaches kindergarten at Milton Elementary School and serves as a moderator for the Turrell Fund’s Early Learning and Development Exchange

We will be discussing the role of music in teaching children about diversity and inclusion and the Anti-Racist Guide for Educators that Hannah was inspired to create.
