Article Title

You Cannot Be a Teacher

Abstract

Microaggressions in education discourage many from pursuing their dreams. In this manuscript, I discuss the microaggressions experienced as a novice teacher in the United States from another country. My story highlights how the public education system’s overpowering desire for sameness propelled my career in a new direction. After experiencing heartbreaking discrimination from a xenophobic principal, I began to fight for educational equity for all.
