A leading Teacher of English for over 20 years, working within diversity rich settings and in areas of high deprivation, challenging the status quo and leading school improvement in adverse situations. Sophia’s passion is creating inclusive settings for all students despite their backgrounds and starting points. Their research uses an intersectional framework. Intersectionality refers to the social, economic, and political ways in which our multiple identities intersect to make us who we are. It also refers to the fact that what are often considered as dissimilar systems of subjugation are mutually dependent and intersecting in nature and together, they constitute an integrated system of oppression. Intersectionality, therefore, is also about social justice and inequalities. Sophia’s current research focuses on teacher skills and knowledge of intersectionality and the effect on student learning in English.
