Polly F. Attwood, M.Div., Ed.D. came to teaching in the late 1970s through two converging paths — working in a community-oriented bicycle repair shop and guiding young people on outdoor learning experiences. Discovering the joy and meaning she found in being with young people, learning with and from them, and supporting their social and intellectual growth, she became a high school history teacher. Rooted in a Quaker faith, multiracial feminism and liberation theology, she lived into her high teaching years for twelve years. Having the opportunity to support student teachers in their practicums revealed the power and importance of engaging and nurturing a next generation of teachers. Hence, she took up the work of teacher education with a focus on preparing aspiring teachers to know the communities of their students and their families and to embrace teaching as a “practice for freedom”(bell hooks), equity and the well-being of all. Since her retirement in June 2020, she have brought my commitment to justice and my love of learning and teaching into her Quaker faith community — locally, regionally and nationwide –to support a deepening journey into challenging racism and other forms of oppression within Quaker communities and organizations. Daily she sustained by a yoga practice, the Quaker community around her, walks with her spouse Wendy and their sweet dog, Rory, and the delight of waking early to see another sunrise.
