Male Educators of Color Fellowship

The Male Educators of Color Fellowship aims to enhance the representation of Black and Brown male educators within the teaching profession, fostering a more diverse and inclusive teacher workforce that mirrors the student population. By actively working to augment the presence of educators from underrepresented backgrounds, the Fellowship program aims to bridge the gap between the diversity of teachers and the diversity of students they serve. This initiative is dedicated to cultivating an educational environment that celebrates and embraces the richness of perspectives and experiences brought forth by Black and Brown male educators, thereby contributing to a more equitable and culturally responsive education system. Below are the male educators from our current fellowship cohort: David Rodriguez, a teacher at Aurora West College Preparatory Academy, and David Lester, a teacher at Montbello Middle School.
