I am a writer, researcher, artist, teacher, and mentor.
Sketchnoting is a relaxing practice that aims to capture ideas in images and text in an engaging way
Sketchnotes combine image and text as a unique visual synthesis. No pre-requisite experience is required.
Teaching and Mentoring
Center student voice through cultural competence, build caring teacher-student relationships as a grounding for academic achievement, and cultivate critical consciousness to transform educational opportunities.
As a teacher my goal is to support students’ rich opportunities to learn meaningful mathematics. I ground my practice in research and theory on learning, teaching, and equity in mathematics education.
Theory and practice go hand in hand. I’m on a quest to engage in critical conversations to strengthen these connections, and take action toward a shared vision for improved mathematics education for all students.
- An Equity Lens (in Sketchnotes)Equity lenses help to better understand and situate both broad issues in mathematics education, as well as approaches to addressing inequities and injustices. In this series of sketches, I explore one lens on equity developed by Rochelle Gutierrez, and relate this to other perspectives by Christopher Emdin and Bettina Love. While the sketches are my own, I draw on the ideas of other scholars and thought leaders to inform these visualizations.
- Being, Rain.In a state of being, I notice. I breathe. I experience sensation in my body. I pause to listen to what I need.
- Cultivating Joy.Cultivating joy means noticing when I’m joyful, and when I’m not. It means accepting what is, and living with an intention to cultivate joy.
