Nandi (she/hers) has been teaching at Turner Elementary school in DCPS for the past 5 years, but is very excited to make the transition into teaching in DC Jail. The recent injustices in the black community inspired her to create a space where educators can talk about culturally responsive reform in our schools. She is currently developing the Black Students Needs Fund and planning fundraising events.
Rosalie (she/hers) was an elementary teacher in DCPS for five years. She is now back in her hometown of Brooklyn working on a degree from Teachers College to move to high school English. She believes that all children deserve an ABAR education that develops global citizens ready to take on the world. She is currently developing the Civic Engagement Workshop and the Curriculum Modification Workshop.
