About Me

I grew up in Michigan and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology from the University of Michigan, a licensure endorsement in ECE-Adult Education from Los Angeles District Intern Program, and a Ph.D. in Education from the University of Colorado. All of my academic work and much of my employment has centered on education and equity. I have teaching experience in rural Michigan as a state-sponsored Migrant Education Teacher; Urban Los Angeles as a bilingual kindergarten and 1st grade teacher; and Urban Denver as a bilingual 6th and 7th grade science and ESL teacher and a 4th grade multi-subject teacher. I received my Ph.D. in Social Foundations, Policy, and Practice in Education at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
