    Educatered: Dr. Tequilla Brownie

    On this episode of EduCatered we’re joined by Dr. Tequilla Brownie. While we try to feature educators on this podcast, the work of Tequilla and her organization is too important to pass up.
    Tequilla is the recently appointed CEO of TNTP, an organization that is seeking to end the injustice of educational inequality by providing excellent teachers to the students who need them most and by advancing policies and practices that ensure effective teaching in every classroom. 
    Tequilla will be leading a session at SXSW EDU on March 8th, 2022 on Disrupting Racial Inequities in K-12 Schools and much of the story of racial inequity is Tequilla’s story as well. 
    Let’s listen in as Shawnee and Tequilla discuss the crossover of education and social work, understanding what motivates young people and more.
