Osseo Area Schools
Equity Teacher
Osseo, MN
I have worked in the education field for the last 12 years as a teacher, an instructional coach, and currently as an equity specialist in the Osseo School District. In this capacity I work with the intersection of race and education, specifically regarding its implications on the educational achievement of communities of color. By using the tools provided by Pacific Educational Group to have Courageous Conversations about Race, the use of Critical Race Theory as a means of analyzing racial implications, and my own experience as a brown indigenous student in the Los Angeles Unified School District, I have become passionate about addressing inequities that lie within our educational system. My passion is a way of addressing my own trauma while attending school as well as a way to prevent others from experiencing the same. I currently coach teachers on Culturally Responsive Pedagogy and its application in the creation of content, and I develop culturally-specific student programming and racially-focused student leadership programming. Lastly, I organize Latino parent/guardian groups who work to address inequities specific to the Latino community.
