Biography

Rojas_Leticia

Dr. Leticia Rojas recently joined the Brandman team and is an Assistant Professor in the School of Education’s Secondary Credential Program on the Ontario campus.  Her background is in K-12 education, having taught English for the Los Angeles Unified School District for nine years. While there, she worked with other educators to create and develop a small school focused on interdisciplinary learning with a focus on law and justice.  She is a National Board Certified teacher and has served as an instructional coach for both English and Social Studies secondary teachers.  In addition to her teaching, Leticia is also a curriculum consultant for the Social Justice Learning Institute, a non-profit aimed at increasing the educational outcomes of young men of color.  Her work and passion for increasing the college access and academic success for youth extends to her research interests, which are focused on the teaching practices that impact Latina/o youth’s educational aspirations and empowerment. 

Leticia lives in Los Angeles and also enjoys time with family and friends, engaging in spaces with other educators, and listening to live music.
