With the Vanguard Research Collective, I had the opportunity to share my story on the importance of centering Black students in K-12 math spaces, at the 2022 International Conference on Urban Education (ICUE). ICUE allowed me to connect with researchers and practitioners focusing on disrupting systemic barriers in educational spaces. I look forward to continuing my learning journey, acquiring critical lenses along the way as I did at ICUE. I am eager to learn and hopefully share more in 2024! --Simone Brown, PhD student in Educational Leadership
