Many teachers are forced into classrooms for which they are not fully prepared. Unfortunately, some of the educational practices of school personnel who matriculated through teacher preparation programs that did not address cultural competency education lead to a spectrum of racist practices. When racist practices are muddled with macroaggressions, microaggressions, prejudices, and discrimination, those who are on the opposing end are often met with disregard, hence the necessity for teachers to possess and understand anti-racism. During this session, the presenter will share her daughter's journey to gifted identification and encounters her daughter faced after being identified. The National Education Association's code of ethics will be used to identify the ethical standards used during her time within the P - 12 setting. The presenter will also utilize Merton's typology to discuss how prejudice and discriminatory beliefs delayed her daughter's gifted identification and will share anti-racist strategies that can be used to address issues that may arise before, during, and after the identification process.
