In episode 24, we welcome the first K-12 educator to the show. Humberto Reyes, a high school educator in Southern California, brings forth resonant themes of developing culturally relevant learning experiences, refining our habits, knowledge, and abilities, and infusing activism within our classrooms. Humberto believes we must come to this work as educators with a fresh spirit and an open mind. He elaborates on his first-generation identity and its influence on his scrappy approach to developing community and locating professional growth opportunities. He shares his own struggles and strategies related to finding a community of like-minded social justice and activist educators. We conclude our discussion with some suggested readings for history, social studies, and ethnic studies teachers, as well as contact information to add Humberto to your network.
