    Hello! I am a PhD Candidate at SFU in Equity Studies in the Faculty of Education. I am also an LST teacher in the district. Prior to working as an LST teacher, I worked as a Faculty Associate and Sessional Instructor at SFU and UBC. My research interests focus on equity and inclusion of students with forced displacement experiences into K-12 schooling systems through decolonizing and culturally sustaining pedagogies and teacher education. My scholarship intersects critical theory, critical refugee studies and decolonial theory.
