Moses Rifkin is a high school physics teacher in Seattle, Washington. Learning how to teach science in a way that supports social justice is hugely important to him, and the positive steps he has taken towards this as a co-creator of the Underrepresentation Curriculum are something he feels very proud of. As a white cis-gender male teacher working in independent schools, he is particularly interested in helping those with privileged identities—including himself—to understand their privilege and the role they can and must play in working for social justice. Moses holds degrees from Brown University and the University of Washington. In addition to his work as a science teacher, he coaches ultimate and facilitates white affinity groups.  He can be found at @RiPhyskin on Twitter.
