Helping in Hard Times Eps 2: Dr. Christopher Adams on Back to School in Covid, trauma & music

Dr. Christopher Adams talks about growing up bicultural and how this drew him to learn about the immigrant experience. This ultimately led him to pursue a degree in which he could learn to both understand and help those having a challenging time in the US education system, especially on the US border with Mexico. Dr. Adams talks about teaching students with trauma, mental health struggles, and how his music he plays for the homeless community gives him connection. Listen and be inspired, challenged and equipped by Dr. Adams as he shares and leads with vulnerability. He spends so much time listening to those he encounters. Here’s our chance to listen to what he has learned, and how we too can make a world of difference as teachers, social justice workers, and human beings. Look for his music with his band C.M. & the Revelators on Spotify. https://open.spotify.com/artist/4nPlCn1ih5Hv7RlW6PQtBl?si=p76q2yFqSOWuNzatkX0c-g.
