Jenn is a PhD candidate in the educational linguistics division, studying the intersection of race, language, and disability in teacher collaboration in special education. Drawing from AsianCrit and intersectionality, she worked on a collaborative autoethnography with Elaine Leigh and Katie Pak on Asian American women graduate student activism and leadership.

Katie Pak is an Educational Leadership Ed.D. Candidate in TLL and was formerly a special education teacher in D.C. She primarily studies how district and school leaders engage their teachers in the implementation of mandated reforms, and she also strives to include a critical race, critical pedagogy approach to her scholarship and volunteer work in the Philadelphia community.
