Meet Our Ambassadors
Our Ambassadors support the work of TeachAAPI as leaders in their communities by facilitating the activation of our important parent advocates and school administration. Together with our Board, our Ambassadors deliver on our mission to strengthen identity and self-advocacy for future generations for AAPI children.
We are inspired to shift perceptions of the AAPI community through creating meaningful resources to support families and educators while advocating for diversity, equity and inclusion.
