As a radical educator, I believe that classrooms should be communities of liberation. I believe that the purpose of schooling extends far beyond the mere transmission of information: school must be to help students develop the perspectives and capacities they need to dismantle systems of oppression. I have worked with students in grades two through twelve, although my primary focus has been the upper elementary grades. I integrate disparate fields of knowledge into unique curricula, and have supported students with a wide variety of learning profiles. I have also worked as a teacher educator for undergraduate and graduate students, and I write frequently about pedagogy and larger issues in education.
