My name is Alex! I'm a Junior at OSU, and I'm pursuing degrees in History and Education with a focus in Secondary Social Studies. I am deeply passionate about cultivating equity in education through the practice of a social justice pedagogy. I am currently writing my Honors Thesis on the ways in which we can restructure 9-12 Social Studies curriculum to center the experience of marginalized groups while still executing upon the State Social Studies Standards.
