Tegan Morton

“Action without philosophy is a lethal weapon; philosophy without action is worthless.” -- Soichiro Honda

Tegan Morton is a science teacher, equity educator, and grades skeptic. The interface of equity and pedagogy is actively negotiated daily in the classroom, and Tegan employs a systemic analysis at scales both large and small--in the classroom, throughout a grade-level, and the larger school--to prioritize learning. Tegan is committed to exploration and analysis of how to redistribute power in the classroom and school to better serve learning, and ways in which systems of oppression can be problematized in a community to serve as a catalyst for greater change. She is committed to non-hierarchical and action-oriented collaborations that work to create innovation through strategic prioritizing of student learning and welfare. Deeply committed to professional growth and learning, Tegan believes in the power of peer-to-peer collaboration as the means by which enduring and innovative change happens within a school culture and community.

  • Ethics and education: developing ethical imperatives and analysis, and an articulated equity pedagogy
