About Julia Kantor

I started my career in elementary education, teaching 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders in a New York City public school. I became deeply interested in the larger questions related to schooling, including those related to student voice, equity and diversity in education. I went on to receive my PhD in Literacy Curriculum and Instruction at CU Boulder with a focus on the use of narratives in the preservice teacher classroom that is centered on issues of diversity and difference. I am also interested in the new media and digital literacy practices of K-12 students as they relate to equity oriented curriculum development.
