It Starts In The Classroom - Virginia Nguyen & Stacy Yung

(S6, EP 4) Virginia Nguyen and Stacy Yung, two longtime secondary Ed history teachers from Southern California joined me for this episode as we talk about Asian Americans educators in K-12 and pushing for racially equitable and inclusive curriculums, including Asian and Pacific Islander history. Learn more about the work that they are doing in this episode. 


Bio: Stacy Yung and Virginia Nguyen are history teachers with over 30 years of combined teaching experience. They are leaders in diversity, equity, inclusion, and allyship in Southern California and have trained 1000s of educators. In response to the March 2021 murder of six Asian women, and the increased awareness of anti-Asian hate, they created Educate to Empower. Together they are creating and curating resources and hosting workshops for educators on topics of DEI and AAPI. They believe that educators committed to antiracism can and change the world. 


Virginia is a passionate high school history teacher with over 15 years of teaching experience, National Writing Project Fellow, and Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI), and Allyship trainer. She is a daughter of Vietnamese refugees, which has shaped her passion for AAPI advocacy, commitment to social justice, equity, and leadership in DEI. She has national experience holding workshops, leading presentations, educator training, and curriculum development. 


Stacy is an instructional designer and former middle school history teacher who specializes in culturally responsive teaching and integrating educational technology. She is passionate about centering student experiences and student voice in the classroom and empowering students to be active citizens in their communities. As an advocate for social justice and equity, she develops and leads workshops on topics like diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and how to build an antiracist classroom community for school site teams, districts, and at conferences
