This free convening has been made possible by the generosity of many.
Our diverse group of teacher advisors have been integral to the planning and success of this convening from the outset. They have shared their incredibly valuable perspectives and expertise, drawn from work across early education settings (e.g., home-based, Head Start, YMCA) to shape every element of the day. We will highlight our advisors over the coming weeks leading up to the convening. First, we'd love to introduce you to Doris Galarza. She is a veteran teacher and teacherpreneur (who even designed the custom tote bags for our convening!)
My name is Doris Galarza and I am the founder and CEO of For The Culture NY LLC. This company started in 2019 after noticing that many of my Latina students didn’t know much about their own culture. I wanted to change that. I want to broaden the lens of perception for Latinas, so that the superficial stereotypes we are subjugated to become a thing of the past! I chose For The Culture NY because I feel that it represents the culture of Latinx people living in NYC.
