Brief Bio:
Dr. Heather Hill serves as an Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology in College of Education and Human Ecology at Cleveland State University. In this role she teaches courses in learning and development theory and the social, cultural and psychological foundations of education. Through curriculum that centers the scholarship of Black and Brown researchers and examines the intersectional influences of race, class and gender in schooling, she facilitates critical dialogue and community building that develops teachers for equity-centered teaching, leading, and social action. Her approach to teaching emerges from lessons learned through research with Black girls reading and writing across urban public language arts classrooms and digital reading and writing environments. Her research highlights the historical and sociopolitical aspects of literacy education and points to possibilities for contexts of schooling to serve as spaces and places for empowerment, community building, critical consciousness raising, and academic achievement for and among youth generally, and Black girls in particular.
