    Sonia Nieto’s book presentation
    Next Tuesday



    Centro is pleased to welcome author Sonia Nieto next Tuesday, Dec. 8th, for the presentation of her book Brooklyn Dreams. Sonia Nieto is a professor emerita of language, literacy, and culture at the College of Education at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. In 2014, she received the Medal for Distinguished Service, the highest honor given by Teachers College at Columbia University.

    In Brooklyn Dreams, Nieto looks back on her formative experiences as a student, activist, and educator, and shows how they reflect and illuminate the themes of her life’s work.

    Nieto offers a poignant account of her childhood and the complexities of navigating the boundaries between the rich culture of her working-class Puerto Rican family and the world of school.

    The book, published by Harvard University Press, chronicles her experiences as a teacher at the first bilingual public school in NYC. Nieto reflects on her journey as an educator and talks about the limits of activism, the failures of school reform, and the joys and challenges of working with preservice and in-service educators to deepen their appreciation of diversity.

    See you next Tuesday!
