    There are two main discourses that resonate with my own teaching beliefs and practices. The first is the activist discourse as I am a strong advocate for the social justice movement. I believe it is important for educators like myself to educate themselves on the issues around the world (as these issues can be present within the lives of our students), it builds empathy, strengthens community, and learn how we can dismantle oppressive structures set in place. The second discourse is unaffiliated discourse as a lot of these theories and forms of learning I have used before and will continue to use during my teaching practice. For example, referencing the Zone of Proximal development, scaffolding, and using reflective practices.
