Professional Summary

Through my teaching I focus on helping learners to understand how their educational identities impacts their success and how they will engage with those around them. Working as a teacher educator, these combined teaching opportunities allow me to model critical curriculum supported through culturally centered pedagogical practices. Humanizing learning allows for both me as the teacher and my students to bring our understandings, experiences and histories into the learning process. This vulnerability of both teacher and student builds community to foster learning​.

Using my platforms to leverage opportunities and access to underserved and underprivileged groups drives my commitment to service. With the skills and knowledge, I have acquired, I work in relevant fields to provide support to promote overall success for communities in need. Service areas of interest include education, mentorship, and diversity, inclusion and equity.
