Anpetu Waste! (Good day!) My name is Shannon Brady, and I am a second year doctoral student in the School of Education. Originally from a tiny town in Montana just south of the Canadian border, I majored in psychology at Lewis & Clark College in Portland, OR. After college, I followed my passions for social justice, educational equity, and small town livin’ to the Pine Ridge Indian reservation where I taught middle school language arts and 3rd grade. (In fact, I was a teacher at the same school that Todd graduated from!) After teaching for five years, I made the hard decision to leave the classroom and come to Stanford. I now study how to use understandings gleaned from social psychology to promote better outcomes for students and people in general--especially those who face additional challenges or stereotypes. I am thrilled, honored, and humbled to co-lead this new trip to the reservation and oyate (people) I love so dearly and who taught me so much.
