Hey everyone! My name is Tamara (she/hers) aka the human behind IFPENCILSCOULDTALK, and I am an elementary school educator and online small business owner in Denver, Colorado. I currently am a K-5 social emotional educator who deeply believes that anti-racism works and LGBTQ+ inclusion practice have a place in all classrooms, especially in elementary school. I teach with my whole heart and prioritize relationships, joy, and meaningful movement in my classes. The resources provided here have been created by me and are free to get them accessible to as many people as possible. Please take into account your own learning environment when using these resources and adjust as needed.
Outside of the classroom, I also am a small business owner! I create and sell empowerment stationary, pins, and apparel meant to uplift and celebrate educators and Black and Queer identities.
