The Education Leadership Program in the Department of Organization and Leadership
B.A. in Government and Politics, University of Maryland at College Park; M.S. in Education - Urban Adolescence with Disability, Long Island University - Brooklyn Campus. Devin began her career in high school social studies and art education over six years ago. She is currently a teacher at ACORN Community High School, a district school in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY. She teaches U.S. history and a historical film studies class. Devin aspires to work towards creating a school environment run collectively by all members of the school community based on the practice of Freire's liberation pedagogy, as "education either functions as an instrument of conformity or it becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world."
