Written by Sabrina Craig on 02.21.2022

Please join us in welcoming our new Curriculum Development Consultant Naadia Owens.

We're thrilled to work with Naadia to create a range of materials and activities to connect Chicago teachers and teaching artists to SSHMP's archival resources.

Naadia is a progressive educator and facilitator rooted in joy, social justice, and anti-racism practices and the owner of Liberate and Transcend Curriculum Consulting. She has more than 10 years of experience creating history, social studies and humanities curricula with a focus on adolescent identity development. Naadia also has 3 years of experience coaching fellow teachers to improve their practice and pedagogy. She is an educational experimenter, self-proclaimed teacher nerd, and a thoughtful collaborator. Her mission is to support teachers as they create classrooms and hallways where every child experiences windows, mirrors and sliding doors.

"Students are at the center of everything I do. My goal is to support teachers as they listen, learn and create transformative and liberated learning environments." -Naadia Owens
