Guadalupe Carrasco Cardona
Guadalupe Cardona has been an Ethnic Studies, English, Social Studies and Journalism educator for 20 years and has taught in three states; California, Arizona and Texas. She is dedicated to developing critical curriculum and facilitating a student-centered classroom environment based on mutual respect, critical thinking, and collaboration. She accomplishes this by fusing her classroom instruction with community cultural knowledge and a focus on auto-biographical counter narrative.
Guadalupe is the Praxis chair of The Association of Raza Educators (Los Angeles chapter), co-founder of XOCHITL Los Angeles, a member of LAUSD’s Ethnic Studies Curriculum Committee, a member of Ethnic Studies Now Coalition’s Coordinating Committee, California Teachers Association/Stanford’s Instructional Leadership Corps, the co-chair of the 50th Chicano Moratorium Commemoration Committee, and a founding member of the Liberated Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum Coalition.
Guadalupe has earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Chicanx Studies and Latin American Studies from UCLA and a Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction, Language and Literacy from ASU. Guadalupe has spent her personal life and career re-membering herself and helps others on their quest for self-identity and the tools for telling their own stories. She will continue this work as a doctoral student beginning in Fall 2021.
