ON BEHALF OF THE CONFERENCE COMMITTEE AND THE SALTISE EXECUTIVE, we welcome you to the 10th Annual SALTISE Conference! We are delighted that we once again are able to come together to share, celebrate, and reconnect, albeit in an online format because of the continuing pandemic.
Living in a Covid-19 world has brought to light many social inequities and pressures that have lived in the shadows but haunt our lives and those of our students —systemic racism, domestic violence, mental health, to name a few. It has put a strain on the educational system and revealed the fissure of socio-economic disparities, which have always existed.
Now, with the ubiquitous use of technology recording every aspect of our lives, bringing us into homes, yet keeping us apart, and showing us the different realities, these challenges are presenting themselves in new ways.
