Tianna Dowie-Chin is a former secondary school teacher from Ontario, Canada, is a Ph.D. candidate  in Teachers, Schools and Society (TSS). She has developed a  research agenda that broadly examines 1) Black feminist thought and education, 2) fostering critical race approaches to teacher education, and 3) challenging global anti-Black racism in education through race theory. Her dissertation research entitled “My Child’s First Teacher: Utilizing Black Mothers’ Counter-Narratives to Reimagine Black Schooling,” centers the epistemologies of Black mothers of children who attend low-performing schools. Through this work she seeks to reveal how these mothers use their ways of knowing to negotiate and navigate educational reform. You can find her on Twitter @Miss_TeeChin
