about tta

Hello!  

We are Corrie and Lee; passionate educators who dream of changing the way we learn about marginalized cultures. We strive to empower teachers, parents, and caregivers to redefine their read alouds as the journey to unlearn and dismantle white supremacy continues.

Corrie has a Master’s degree in Gender/Cultural Studies .  she is most often found on Instagram, where she posts all of the content, and really enjoys taking the pictures of the books she reviews!

Corrie is a former classroom teacher and is dedicated to examining and working against the Eurocentric heteropatriarchy of school systems and many of the most visible books for children. She has presented internationally and her formal secondary education has been focused on ABAR education and its implementation strategies in the classroom and home.

Lee previously worked in the field of education and child care for 10 years. Now they work at an organization that provides training and technical assistance to folks who work with individuals experiencing homelessness, Substance Use Disorder and/or mental illness, with a strong focus on racial equity and how intersections of identity can lead to behavioral health challenges.

They can most often be found updating TTA’s website, so that it remains fresh & informative! Lee’s mission is to be fully authentic and hopefully have a part in creating a safer world, a place where GNC (gender non-conforming) and nonbinary people are able to live out their truth.
