Since our inception in 2020, our work has already impacted over 3,000 students and 400 teachers. We provide a socio-historical lens to inform our learners' capacity to understand and delineate the connection between past educational practices and the current pedagogy we are currently shaping.
We have been blessed to partner with public, private, and charter schools to deliver customizable learning opportunities to enhance educators' levels of self-awareness and cultivate a collaborative inquiry framework when reflecting and shaping our educational mindset and practice. Our goal is to work WITH districts, schools, educational leaders, teachers, and students to foster healing, liberation, student agency, and teacher wellness as the pillars to uphold their engagement with the teaching and learning process.

THE BEGINNING OF MY "WHY"
Towards the end of her doctoral degree journey, Dr. Mel articulated the love and passion for culturally responsive teaching in a 3MT competition at UA Little Rock. She won first place overall and the Regional's People Choice awardee. Listen in on her reflections of her experience and what sparked her fire for culturally responsive teaching, which has now led to her love and purpose in advocating for social emotional learning.
