ABOUT AARIKA (via AarikaForCongress.com) Aarika is an educator at her core. Aside from the Teacher of the Year Award she received from the Los Angeles Clippers, She has been published in the Journal for Multicultural Education for an article she co-authored with Dr. Shartriya Collier and Betty Burston entitled “Teaching STEM as a Second Language: Utilizing SLA to Develop Equitable Learning for All Students.” In 2018, Aarika was invited to the Better Together Teachers' Summit at California State University Northridge to speak to dozens of educators about helping every child access curriculum by creating individual connections with each student. Aarika has taught students from diverse backgrounds in public and private schools. She understands the importance of closing the disparity in academic performance between groups of students. In 2020, Aarika was an active volunteer during the democratic primary for former presidential candidate, Andrew Yang. She canvassed in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and all over Los Angeles, where she spoke to hundreds of people about the state of our country. Prior to the suspension of Andrew Yang's campaign, Aarika was in the process of organizing a town hall which was intended to address issues impacting low income communities. As Aarika was hearing the concerns of everyday people, she was inspired to do something which is why she filed to run for Congress. She feels strongly that everyday people matter and will fight hard to solve the problems that matter most to them. If elected, Aarika will support small businesses, work to close the income gap, foster care reform, and fight for every child's right to quality education. Aarika attended public schools her entire life and was often the only student of color in the classroom. But she used it as motivation to be an honor roll student and break stereotypes. This is how she learned to stand against injustice and inequality and acquired her work ethic. She brought her capacity for hard work and her commitment to equality into the classroom as a teacher. Aarika went on to study at California State University Northridge where she earned a B.A. in Liberal Studies with an emphasis on Science and an M.Ed in Curriculum and Instruction. -- Coin Stories is brought to you in part by The Bitcoin Conference and Okcoin.

The curriculum is designed for a majority non-white, lower income student body through an approach that carefully considers the demands of unseen individuals. The conversation continues with a discussion of faculty engagement, as Peter shares his past successes and strategies in convincing hesitant faculty members to adopt ePortfolio. “Portfolios sell themselves . . .

Peter McLellan joins host Jeff Yan to discuss his experiences leading the ePortfolio program at Oxford College of Emory University. Early in the conversation, Peter shares an explanation of his primary research interest, the field of Hauntology: “How do people that we don't see, or people from the past . . . impact us in the present and make demands on us, oftentimes demands for justice, to create a better future?” Peter explains how Hauntology informs his efforts to create antiracist curriculum  by taking seriously the knowledge and experiences that students bring with them to the university. The curriculum is designed for a majority non-white, lower income student body through an approach that carefully considers the demands of unseen individuals. The conversation continues with a discussion of faculty engagement, as Peter shares his past successes and strategies in convincing hesitant faculty members to adopt ePortfolio. “Portfolios sell themselves . . . So, it's a matter of talking to folks about what a reflective and integrated curriculum looks like in the liberal arts.”

In his time working with black student he's seen how crucial his presence is, from diverting hair disasters and being school dad, to teaching critical thinking skills to second graders. And just like a hero, he doesn't shy away from hard topics & challenges. His podcast, “Short Stories of Black History", was created to further these discussions and embrace our experiences.
