We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: In order for our kids to be it, they need to see it.
That’s an important mantra this Milwaukee teacher encourages his class to live by throughout the year. See, for Black History Month, Terrence Sims’ 6th graders emulated famous Black books and album covers, replacing our icons with their own bright faces.
While this project dropped this earlier this month, Sims is clear that he works hard to spread this feeling of pride during the school year and not just during February.
“Black history has always been important to me, but as an educator, it is a crucial part of my job,” Sims recently told HelloGiggles.
“While February is an exciting time for Black history, I teach my students daily to love their skin and know their personal history.”
Be clear: This isn’t Sims first time celebrating Black excellence in the classroom.
Back in 2017, his class went viral for his students rapping their own verses over Tee Grizzley’s “First Day Out.”
Thank you Mr. Sims for all of your hard work!
