I am the founder of The Tiny Activist and a former classroom teacher dedicated to examining and working against the Eurocentric heteropatriarchy of school systems and many of the most visible books for children. I offer consulting, sensitivity readings and booklist curation to fit a variety of needs, ages, and subjects.
I hold an MA in Gender/Cultural Studies from Simmons University and a BA in Early Education in Inclusive Settings from University of Massachusetts, Boston.
For my master’s thesis, I focused on Anti-Bias Anti-Racist (ABAR) approaches that assist educators implement diverse literature and social justice ethics into their classroom culture. I developed curriculum and resource guides to help educators to develop ABAR classroom lessons. I also created lists of children’s books, books for adults, and recommendations for documentaries and websites that provide even more context and support.
I created TTA to provide a way to share my work and expertise to help teachers, parents, and people like you to foster an ABAR approach in your classrooms, homes, and workplaces.
