This year’s Practitioners in Residence (PIR) were Roxana Duenas, Jorge Lopez, & Eduardo Lopez.  The three seasoned classroom teachers, who taught together for more than a decade, visited UC Davis and conducted a workshop entitled “Resistance, Resilience and Reimagination.”  They shared their experience in 9th Grade Ethnic Studies at Roosevelt High School. They held a workshop for local educators in Sacramento at Soul Collective, a community-based nonprofit serving artist and activists. Roxanna, Jorge, and Eduardo also spent their time with TJE writing a chapter for Transformative Justice in Teacher Education (Winn & Winn, Harvard Education Press).
