There are two parts of Episode 3 with my guest Marielys Garcia. She is the Dean of Culture at my charter school. One day, I’ll talk to teachers from other schools, I promise. Nonetheless, the work she does is valuable and her story is certainly worth listening to. In part one, we talk about her sheltered, but happy upbringing in Queens and Brooklyn as an Afro-Latina Dominican woman. Also, you’ll hear Marielys describe her experience at an Afrocentric school and the role that played early in her teaching career. We touched on how being a woman impacts her role as a dean, especially when addressing behavioral issues and building relationships with students.
