Debut book by Dr. Jennifer Martin and Jennifer Brooks.
This book will contain personal stories of a university professor and her student on their respective personal journeys to conduct research for social justice toward more equitable K-12 educational environments. This collaboration led to a circle of mentoring, between a non-traditional first generation college student and career-changer, and a university professor--together they support one another, and have developed a friendship. This book reveals their inspirational relationship as a model to which readers can aspire. This book also is grounded in intersectionality. Author personal narratives and analyses will be supplemented by interviews with our respective networks of mentors, and their mentors—resulting in generations of practical knowledge.
