Abstract

This manuscript examines the ways that a Queer Chicana teacher’s multiple identities and perceptions of race, gender, and sexuality shape her efforts to disrupt colonial models of education in the United States. Through a self-narrativization research design, the authors explore three essential dimensions of educational expectations (dispositional, ethical, and pedagogical) and illuminate concrete examples underpinning the concept of borderland pedagogy and the ways the teacher’s Queer and Chicana identities served as a source of strength to redefine the classroom. In doing so, this work has implications for multicultural educators to reexamine social justice dispositions and the ethical practice of classroom expectations of diverse students.
