Shanté Younker, Anastasia Isaacs, Evan Sakuma, and Kimberly Beltran Villalobos
Students Shanté Younker, Anastasia Isaacs, Evan Sakuma, and Kimberly Beltran Villalobos
presented at the Fall 2020 English Division faculty retreat. The theme of the retreat
was "Innovation Amidst Disruption and the Future of PCC;" the students served on a
“Transformative Educational Praxis and Pro-Black Classrooms." They shared how learning in classrooms that validate the existence and experiences of Black students empower Black and non-Black students. Additionally, they raised the awareness of English faculty on how to create empowering experiences for students by building allyship, revising curriculum and syllabi, and recognizing student brilliance. The panel was moderated by Dr. Amy Tahani-Bidmeshki, Instructor at PCC, and received positive feedback from faculty due to the students' insights.
