Through this collaborative paper, a teacher education professor and recent teacher credential graduates together assert that  rehumanization of the educator  must center the voices of teacher candidates. For the final project of a Teaching for Social Justice credential class in Spring 2022, teacher candidates co-wrote a letter and created an accompanying digital art piece called A Classroom United Will Never Be Defeated. The purpose of this paper is not only to offer an example of a culminating, collaborative philosophy of teaching assignment grounded in humanizing, justice-driven teacher education praxis but to broadly explore how teacher education curriculum can position teacher candidates as emerging justice leaders.
