Reflections of a Rural White Working-Class Kid in Higher Education
As a white, first-generation college student from rural Ohio with a family deeply rooted in their working-class culture and identity, going to college, much less becoming a member of the professoriate, had it's complications. In this reflective piece, I seek to understand my experiences through the process of currere and how I've used what I've learned from both my white working-class family and my higher education to become a more empahetic educator and utilitarian scholar.
