As a new member of the foundation’s and CR’s team, I am exploring all opportunities to do the work that I feel I am called to do. This bio sums up what I have done but it doesn’t say capture my commitment for gender equity, educational equity, and desire to affect change through quality educational opportunities here and abroad. Meenoo Rami, author of author of Thrive, is a national board certified teacher who taught students English in Philadelphia for ten years, at the Science Leadership Academy and in other public schools in the city. She has shared her classroom practice at various national and regional conferences including NCTE, ISTE, ASCD, ILA, EduCon, and the National Writing Project’s Urban Sites Conference.
The founder of #engchat, an international Twitter chat for English teachers, Meenoo has also been a teacher-consultant for the Philadelphia Writing Project and an educational consultant with The Educator Collaborative. She is also an instructor in Arcadia University’s Connected Learning Certificate Program. Meenoo is currently on a two-year assignment as a teaching fellow with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, where she is working to help teachers refine their practice through collaboration. I hope we can find some time to connect now or in Jan over lunch of coffee. Please let me know.
