For 20 years, I have been employed as a professor at the same university teaching four sometimes five classes each semester. Now that I’m not teaching a 4/4 load, I have created this new WordPress blog about my experiences as a formerly tenured Chicana faculty displaced by COVID-19. The blog is mostly to help me start writing and figure out what to do next. This is my preliminary introductory post.
I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley and in San Francisco. I was raised from 4-14 by my great grandmother who emigrated during the Mexican revolution. I moved back in with my mother during high school. I’ve also lived in Berkeley and Austin.
New blog posts will be made each Monday, but I reserve the right to take a week off each month.
You may comment on my posts.
