What would you like others to know about you?

I am a full time Inclusive Learning teacher and single mom! I also write curriculum for many publications that focus on decolonizing teaching through possibilities for anti-racist pedagogies and reconciliation beyond spectacle.

What have you done so far, or what do you hope to accomplish during your time at UVic doing graduate studies?

I recently co-wrote a chapter in a book edited by Nicholas Ng-A-Fook and Kristina Llewellyn. (2020) called  Oral History, Education, and Justice: Possibilities and Limitations for Redress and Reconciliation, which just won the Society of Professors of Education Outstanding Book Award for 2021.

Regardless of your research interests, take a course in Indigenous Studies or Indigenous Education at UVic. One course which influenced my research and teaching practice was an exploration in Indigenous ways of teaching, learning and knowing through film and music with Dr. Shauneen Pete.
