My name is Phylicia and I am an educator in Buffalo, NY.
I work, well live, at the intersection of education and Justice, teaching anti-bias content and practices to young children and teachers. So, if you love education, justice, Black babies, or some combination of the three, you can expect to see much more of this type of content on the Flagrant City platform!
Why me? I hold a Master’s of Science in Curriculum and Instruction, a Bachelor’s of Arts in Early Childhood and Childhood Education, and teaching certifications in Early Childhood Ed, Childhood Ed, and Students with Disabilities. I have been in education since 2011 – working in a variety of settings and with children in many different age-groups. I also served as a full-time educational advocate in five different school districts, and am currently a Director of Curriculum and Instruction. I’m also a nerd. 🤓 I am typically engaged in some form of research and I love love love a good conference.
While, I have all my receipts, I do not claim to know everything about education. The goal here is to build community with y’all (oh yea, I’m a code-mesher not a code-switcher). Comments are always welcome! Also follow me on social media – IG: loveisphe_nomenal twitter: missphe_nomenal.
