September Program: 100% Myself – Discussion with Tracy Stegall, Principal at Birch Elementary School
Sunday Sept. 21, 3:00pm
First United Methodist Church 1421 Spruce St, Boulder
Tracy was featured in the film sponsored by Manhattan Middle School called “100% Myself” that screened last year at the Bolder Life Festival. The film displays the powerful symbiosis of kids, community and acceptance during Manhattan Middle School’s Diversity Day Assembly. The film also follows Tracy’s journey as an ‘out’ principal who reflects on her own middle school ‘closeted’ experience of isolation and fear but ends with her being extremely hopeful for the future of today’s kids.
Join us as Tracy shows the film and then leads a discussion about the idea of “un-othering” in schools, as well as current movements to ensure that when we talk about all kids and families feeling welcome, cared for, and loved… that ALL really means ALL.
Tracy is a founding member of Sound Circle, a Boulder-based women’s a cappella group that’s part of the Gay and Lesbian Association of Choruses and a member of the Boulder Valley Safe Schools Coalition. In 2013, as Principal of Birch Elementary, she was the recipient of the Joe Todd Award and the Heart of Broomfield Award.
