Dr. Akosua Lesesne is an educational design leader with expertise in Education for Black liberation, grades 6-12, and the Black teaching tradition. She will be joining us as the guest speaker for our very first Education Now! Webinar series of 2022. She began her career as a high school social studies instructor and has 17 years of teaching, instructional coaching, and district-level leadership experience within five major predominantly Black and Latinx urban school districts along the east coast. Akosua was one of the chief architects of a flagship district-wide Black male mentoring program with Broward County Public Schools, served on the grant writing team that won the district a $5 million High School Graduation Initiative grant from the United States Department of Education to expand this program, and oversaw the expansion of this program model throughout the district. Her work defending and inspiring our most vulnerable youth has earned her praise from students, parents, colleagues, and renowned educational scholars alike. In her latest book, McArthur "Genius" Award-winning educator and renowned author Lisa Delpit wrote this about Lesesne's impact, "Your tireless efforts to give our children brighter futures is exhausting to watch, but so inspires me to continue the struggle." In addition to founding and leading Lesesne Learning, Akosua is the Founder and CEO of The Lesesne Collective Corp d/b/a Sisters in Education Circle (SIEC) and the SIEC Retreat Host. She earned a Bachelor's degree, cum laude, from Harvard University, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Tufts University, and a Doctorate at the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Education.
