Romina A. Pacheco was born and raised in the Caribbean city of Maracay, Venezuela. Romina’s early work as an educator focused on teaching English as a Foreign Language, and Spanish as a Second Language. Romina’s career as an educator shifted when she migrated to the United States in her mid-20s where most of her work has concentrated in teaching Social Justice Education and Critical Multicultural Education in both institutions of higher education and the K-12 school system. Romina has a M.Ed in Social Justice Education from the University of Massachusetts-Amherst, and a Ph.D from New Mexico State University where she studied Curriculum & Instruction and Gender & Sexuality Studies.
