Chandra Russo draws guidance for teaching from her own transformative experiences as a college student as well as from the communities of resistance she has been a part of and now studies. She understands teaching as a potential act of social change, and seeks to enliven her pedagogy with the multiple ways of knowing, being and seeing the world that she has learned from scholars and activists.
