International Institute of MN
Program Director/Teacher College Readiness Academy
I am passionate about access to and success in higher education for all students, particularly those who are working against unjust systems of oppression and gate-keeping.  I believe the long-standing, costly, and ineffective system of developmental education has been a roadblock for many students.  The alternative to developmental education is College Readiness Academy (CRA), which provides free and integrated skill development as well as fully wrap-around navigation support that allows them to overcome other non-academic roadblocks as well.  I am attending this conference to advocate for adult learners, our CRA model, and our navigation support necessary to any adult trying to the very complex system of higher education.

When I’m not fired up about these matters or my awesome students, I enjoy hanging out with my children, dancing with my Dyfit.org group outside in public,  and writing screenplays.
