Congratulations our 2019-2020 ABWHE Textbook Scholarship recipient, RoKami Taylor-Gillette!
RoKami is a Teaching and Learning PhD candidate at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. She balances her studies with being a wife and mother. “…This scholarship will help me continue my pursuits to help uplift and make a difference with how marginalized groups are treated and educated in the public- school systems in the United States. After completing my doctoral studies I plan to continue in the footsteps of phenomenal scholars such as Geneva Gay, Gloria Ladson-Billings, and Geneva Smitherman by ensuring that the students I educate will be exposed to culturally relevant and sustaining pedagogies…”
Wishing our sister scholar, RoKami all the best as she completes her PhD and becomes an educational leader and change agent.
