I'm a learner first, and an educator second. I love Hip Hop culture-- its ancestors and offspring. I live my life by the Sankofa bird. My credentials read B.A. in journalism/creative writing, MA in Women and Gender Studies, and Teaching Credential in Urban Education. I was a 2010 corps member for the Bay Area, and I continue to teach in East Oakland.
