Teacher in Residence for Diversity and Cultural Competency: Introduction
A bit about who I am...
- Prior to this role, I served as a Grade 2 classroom teacher at Long Meadow Elementary School and have recently earned a doctorate in Instructional Leadership. There, my research focused on the nature of courage in classrooms.
I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge and emphasize that I come to this work with a profound sense of humility, and a vigilant awareness of the limitations of my perspective and my social identities. I'll be working constantly on raising my own critical consciousness and I hope you will join me in ever-widening our worldviews.
- I recognize the magnitude of the profession of education, and believe wholeheartedly that we teach humanity first and foremost.

I'd love to work with you!
The Teacher in Residence for Diversity and Cultural Competency role is new this year and I am here primarily to support you, our staff and students! I look forward to connecting with you.
