I am in my 13th year of teaching and 11th of teaching Social Studies in CPS. I hold my Masters degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago in Urban Education Policy. I anticipate being a National Board Certified teacher by the end of December 2017. My teaching has been featured in Lisa Delpit’s 2nd book “Multiplication is for White People”. My writings have been featured on the John Dewey Society Journal of School and Society, Alternet, The Chicago Reporter, Gapers Block and Huff Post. I was featured in The Guardian, interviewed by the Sun Times, Politics Tonight on CLTV, CANTV, WTTW, as well BBC Radio, Alternet Radio, and WGN radio. I am also a Louder Than A Bomb spoken word poetry coach. I am married to a CPS teacher and have two children. The oldest of the two attends CPS while the other is too young.
