Clarice Brazas (she/her) holds an Ed. S. in Instructional Technology from the University of West Georgia. She is in her 13th year of teaching and is always looking for ways to improve her craft. The first three years of her career were spent working with students who had emotional and behavioral needs, which early on gave her the desire to educate students in a holistic and engaging way.  Currently, Clarice teaches Humanities at The U School, an open admission, learner-centered school in the School District of Philadelphia. 

After moving to Philadelphia from Atlanta in 2017, she was introduced to the Caucus of Working Educators (WE) and immediately joined the Racial Justice Organizing committee to help with the work leading up to Black Lives Matter Week of Action; she works year-round to implement the demands of the week in the School District of Philadelphia. Since 2017, she has been active with the Melanated Educators Collective. Outside of this work, she enjoys reading, yoga, travel and spending time with friends and family.
