The Thrive Program at Augsburg University is partnering with Edifying Teachers and Elevate Teaching for the event “Edifying, Elevating, and Uplifting Teachers of Color.” The keynote will be Ms. Sofia Gonzalez, an Ambassador Fellow at the US Department of Education. Dr. Rudy Ruiz of Edifying Teachers, Dr. Sergio Madrid of Augsburg, and Dr. Rose Chu of Elevate Teaching will facilitate the convening.

We aspire for this event to be an opportunity for prospective teachers, teacher candidates, and alumni from different programs to connect and learn together. It is also an opportunity to bring different stakeholders together who are interested and committed to attracting, supporting, and retaining teachers of color in their journey.
