This reflective essay documents my experiences, critiques, and application of critical whiteness studies in my own research, though, as proven below, they cannot be understood without my forever commitment to strengthen, expand, and re-imagine the field. To be clear, I do not critique for critique's sake, rather, I present my approach for the sake of forever expanding how CWS is operationalized in future research. CWS is a much-needed theory, framing, and field because its application to educational research drives the revealing of how whiteness operates in educational contexts; a condition, which left intact, will leave any attempts of racial justice fruitless. Therefore, I tread cautiously because as I may or may not subscribe to particular approaches within CWS, I do not by any means claim that there is one justifiable approach over another, especially when the entire field and theoretical application of CWS is dealing with widespread discreditation.
