Reflecting on my experiences as somewhat of a transient growing up and working in multicultural contexts, quite often with children, families, and communities victimized by systemic poverty, racism, and other forms of oppression, I have committed my career as an educator to overcoming the poverty of indifference and working for social justice and building inclusive communities.Prior to my life in higher education, I was a high school teacher in the Washington, DC area, where I taught social studies and English for speakers of other languages. I also served in the Marine Corps for eight years, primarily in Asia.
