Kisha Howell

Kisha Howell is an educator, a community founder, a doctoral candidate, and a researcher. She places critical listening, innovative thinking, provocative questioning, and self-reflection at the center of her work. In addition to partnering with The Children's Defense Fund Freedom Schools and Teacher Opportunity Corps, she also works as an adjunct instructor at Hunter College, and has served as a staff developer, new teacher mentor, and research assistant. She not only draws on her years of experience teaching elementary and middle school in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Harlem, but also merges her understanding of literacy, teacher education, and activism to curate the necessary conversations to move the culture of education forward. Kisha draws on critical race theory and black feminist thought, and she grounds her work in the traditions of Sankofa, repeatedly returning to her ancestral past to glean knowledge.
