MAE Leadership Series Presentation Focuses on the Power of Teachers

Tamara Handy, Truman alumna from Sri Lanka, joins the Fall MAE Leadership Series presentations with a special discussion focusing on her background in special education.

Handy’s presentation, “Teacher Leaders as Cultural Workers: Transforming Inequitable Education Systems,” shares her trajectory of becoming a special education teacher and the complex nature of transforming school systems. Handy views teaching as cultural work, targeting inequitable learning practices in diverse educational settings. Her research focuses on students who are marginalized in public education due to minority ethnic status, socioeconomic status, gender and dis/ability.

The presentation takes place at 6 p.m. Sept. 28 in the Student Union Building Alumni Room. Refreshments will be provided. The Fall MAE Leadership Series is sponsored by the Department of Education.
