Felicia wrote, Teachin’ It! Breakout Moves that Break Down Barriers for Community College Students.  Teachin’ It! offers practical ideas to help instructors bolster the success of students seeking to attain their educational dreams–especially students underrepresented among those with four-year degrees. Her inclusive teaching approach focuses on: (1) co-developing a community of learners with students; (2) illuminating students’ assets; (3) using culturally responsive instruction; and (4) fostering a classroom environment where students from all backgrounds feel safe to develop their unique identities as powerful lifelong learners. Her work is highlighted in national press such as The Chronicle of Higher Ed, Education Week, Inside Higher Ed, Journal of Mathematics and Culture, and North East Public Radio.

Currently, Felicia is writing, The Ripple Effect: Becoming the Change We All Need. The Ripple Effect is a self-help book that is not just about helping oneself. While The Ripple Effect does offer practical ideas to heal past hurts, resolve trauma, and transform limiting beliefs about one’s self and others, it does so to support a reader’s unique journey to become an agent of positive change in the world. The Ripple Effect will inspire and embolden readers to forge their unique paths to actualize their full potential to be happy and humane–thus creating a positive ripple effect outward.
