I work as a librarian and technology integrator at Greene Street Friends. I also have a new curriculum startup, JustMaybeCo. (see justmaybe.co). Other than that, I stay as close to ground-up educational and community change efforts as possible, attempting to echo the voices that are often disenfranchised, silenced, and misrepresented.
What does your ideal classroom look like?
I'm in search of a feeling, when I teach. It is better to ask me what the ideal world looks like (ex. MLK's beloved community), because the classroom is the space to be able to imagine, formulate, and strategize towards its realization. A person-oriented classroom, rather than a thing-oriented classroom is the goal. A place for deep study of what the world has become and how we may claim responsibility for its future is what my classroom looks like.
If you were to lead a session at Edcamp USDOED, what would it be about?
"Can't Remix History: Settler Colonialism, White Supremacy, Structural Racism and Other Unnecessary and Relevant Evils that Education Technology Won't Save Us from"
aka James Baldwin's "A Talk to [Technology] Teachers"
Have you ever attended an Edcamp?
