Mr. Acosta, a high school teacher in Tucson for nearly 20 years, developed and taught  Chican@/Latin@ literature classes for the district’s acclaimed Mexican-American Studies (MAS) program. His classes have been profiled nationally, appearing in The New York Times, CNN and the Los Angeles Times.  He was also a plaintiff in the court case challenging the Arizona state law that banned the MAS program in 2010. Mr. Acosta is featured in the documentary Precious Knowledge and appears in a humorous segment about the ban on The Daily Show with John Stewart. Mr. Acosta is the recipient of many education awards and was named one of the 10 Latinos in politics to keep an eye on by the Huffington Post in 2013. He continues to work and collaborate to ensure students have access to critical pedagogy and culturally responsive curriculum.
Acosta will be followed by 24 thought provoking, inspiring workshops. Join us in a day that promises to rejuvenate your teaching spirit.
