Theo completed a two-year teaching practicum during her undergraduate work, which involved a residency, research project, and culminating thesis. In 2017, she was selected as a teaching fellow for Breakthrough Collaborative, a college-preparatory program for underrepresented youth in San Francisco. Her work as an educator is influenced by trauma-aware practices, Eric Garner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences, and Bell Hooks’ seminal book on education, Teaching to Transgress. “These works inspire me to facilitate academic spaces where students honor their strengths, are safe to explore, and feel seen and supported,” she says.  

Experience

With a TESOL certification (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages), Theo is skilled in supporting literacy development for English-language learners. Before joining the Newport team in September 2020, she worked as a language teacher in Japan. There she created and taught language-learning curriculum for middle and elementary schools in a small town outside of Tokyo. Theo previously worked with the Aspire Education Project to provide supplemental education programming to students in the Bay Area.
