An Interview with Shamari Reid

Humans Who Teach

A Guide for Centering Love, Justice, and Liberation in Schools

As humans who teach, there is so much that we want for our students and for ourselves. We want to make our classrooms welcoming and equitable places for students, and we want to lead lives full of peace, love, and joy. However, the ways in which we have been socialized can hold us back. In Humans Who Teach: A Guide for Centering Love, Justice, and Liberation in Schools, Shamari Reid lays out a path for working toward liberation for our students and for ourselves by honoring our own humanity and choosing love over fear.

Full Description

Love. Love now. Love always. Time and lives are wasting.

All of the humans in schools—kids and adults—deserve joy. Yet, our experiences in schools, and the experiences of our students, are often far from joyful. 

Humans Who Teach invites readers to explore the complicated humanity of those who teach, with a focus on how we have been socialized to accept the status quo, our very real fears in disrupting the status quo, and how we can rely on our human capacity to love to engage in teaching for social justice even in the presence of fear.

In a sea of voices seeking to continue the deprofessionalization and dehumanization of teachers, Humans Who Teach powerfully speaks back to these voices and reminds educators that, first and foremost, they are human. And within their humanity lie transformative possibilities for cultivating lives and classrooms characterized by love.” — from the foreword by Drs. Bettina L. Love, Gholdy Muhammad, and Yolanda Sealey-Ruiz
