Please feel free to contact me at carissapurnell@gmail.com with any questions, comments, or research opportunities.

I am happy to provide lecture and research materials addressing community responsive pedagogy, social engagement, critical thinking, trauma, cultural classroom practices, as well as facilitate discussions and events addressing a scope of sociological topicsĀ from the history of race to the impact of local politics on our education system. I recognize the core to transformation lives is an interdisciplinary and strategic assault on injustice with as many courageous leaders in our classrooms and in our streets as possible.
