Originally from a small town in Massachusetts, Jocelyn moved to Greensboro, NC for college. She graduated from Guilford College in May 2017 with double majors in History and Secondary Education (grades 6-12 social studies licensure). While at Guilford College, she worked in the Office of Admission as the Tour Guide Coordinator as well as the Student Coordinator for Overnight Visits and served as a RA for three years. She was fortunate to study abroad in both Panama and Peru and serve as a teaching fellow for Breakthrough Collaboratives in Silicon Valley. She presented auto-ethnographic research at the American Educational Research Association in 2016 (regarding adequate re-entry for pre-service teachers who served in post-colonial nations) and in 2017 (regarding culturally responsive teacher preparation for biracial teachers). She is very excited to begin her experience with BECA and to grow with her students. She is always in the market for arts and crafts and is looking forward to incorporating that into the classroom with BECA.
