Dr. Lane’s collective ten years of experience as an educator in Los Angeles public high schools is the motivating force behind her commitment to urban education. Her teaching, scholarship, and activism work together to suture the disconnect between critical social theory and classroom practice. Monique’s specializations include practitioner development through transformative pedagogical interventions, Black feminist praxis, and educational justice for African American female youth. As a scholar-activist, Dr. Lane has presented her research at numerous national education conferences and during invited talks, which has resulted in several emerging publications. A recently published article, titled "Reclaiming our queendom: Black feminist pedagogy and the identity formation of African American girls" appears in Equity and Excellence in Education.
