Kenya C. Ramey

Personal Project Coordinator

"She who learns, teaches." As a 4th generation educator, my pedagogy is influenced by the historiography of indigenous cultures of the world and contemporary movements; Having received my formal education from Virginia State University (BA, History) and Temple University (MA & MEd, Africana Studies - Social Studies Teacher Education). For the past 15+ years, I have served as an educator for NYC Department of Education, District of Columbia Public Schools and several international communities: Ghana, Tanzania, Ethiopia, South Africa, Cuba, Brazil, India, Haiti and Puerto Rico. Currently, I engage as the Personal Project Coordinator at the District of Columbia International School, where I implement International Bachelorette (IB) applications of learning global context themed student projects, curriculum design and instructional implementation for the following key areas: Project Management, Research Methods and Training Teacher Supervisors. A Fulbright-Hayes Scholar, I have facilitated research, curriculum development, workshops, training and professional development seminars around diversity, equity and inclusion within education. I am furthering my scholarship, practice and leadership by pursuing the Doctorate of Education (EdD) degree in Educational Administration and Supervision at Virginia State University; where I am focusing on identifying the historical and social implications of education within the Black community from an Africana pedagogical framework. In my walk, I interconnect my paradigm, professional experiences and community engagement to be manifestations of my essential commitment to education, cultural advocacy and social/human rights. This is the drive that steers my work.
