I am a Chicago Public Schools high school social studies and poetry teacher that started teaching in 2007. I am National Board Certified and hold my Masters in Urban Education Policy.
My teaching has been featured in Lisa Delpit’s book “Multiplication is for White People”. My writings on education and race have been featured on Huff Post, John Dewey Society Journal of School and Society, Alternet, ChicagoNow, The Chicago Reporter, Gapers Block, and the South Side Weekly.
I was featured in The Guardian, Chicago Tribune, and Chicago Sun Times. I was interviewed on TV by Fox32, CANTV, and WTTW. I was interviewed on BBC Radio, Heartland Media, and WGN radio. I was on the We Still Teach TV show discussing Chicago survivors of police torture.
With other amazing Chicago educators, I have helped create and lead professional development for educators about Unpacking the Effects of White Supremacy on Teachers, Students, and Us All and the Reparations Won curriculum on Chicago Police torture.
I am also a Louder Than A Bomb spoken word poetry coach.
My partner is also a CPS teacher and we have two children that both attend CPS.
