Education

2012

As the 2012 Director of Curriculum, coordinator, and mentor for My Brother’s Keeper, a mentoring program for traditionally marginalized youth, Liz created a curriculum that focuses on enhancing reading, writing, and comprehension skills through performance literacies education. She envisions a world where children have access to higher education, strong cultural-esteem, and are comfortable and engaged in the classroom. She believes educational spaces should prioritize inclusive cultural and historical curriculums and learning experiences. Liz’s work is developing future leaders who will ensure that our communities are free, just, and empowered. By implementing multi-literacies pedagogy, students are allowed the space to use their linguistic and cultural diversity to better explore and create knowledge while engaging critically with the world. She plans to implement this curriculum next year in Atlanta local schools and communities.
