Patrice Fenton, PhD has been an educator in NYC for over thirteen years. While she has taught in both the public and private sectors, her passion has been in serving both students and teachers who work in the largest public school system in the world; the very place she received her K-12 education. As a proponent of equity based policies and practices that improve the quality of education for black and brown youth in under-served urban communities, she serves as Associate Director of NYC Men Teach at the City University of New York. With a firm belief that context matters, deeply, her focus is on shifting the paradigm of teacher education to support cultural and identity responsive approaches toward preparing educators for the classroom.
