Raven serves as the program coordinator for the America Reads program this semester. Raven is from Toledo, Ohio, and is a recent graduate of the Master of Social Work program here at the University of Michigan. She has worked as a graduate assistant with America Reads since September 2016.
As a former elementary educator, she is passionate about educational equity for children from underrepresented backgrounds, and about training work-study students to serve as literacy tutors in grades k-5, to help address those inequities. One goal this semester is to continuously think of ways to engage tutors. Some of her favorite hobbies and activities include cooking new recipes, reading, and watching comedy. In this role, she is hoping to gain the skills and knowledge to effectively work with community partners by allowing them to share what their needs are, and working work with other staff members at the Ginsberg Center to meet the needs the community partner has identified.
