Dr. Tania Hogan (pronouns: she, her, hers, ella) is the Director of Undergraduate Student Success and NxtGEN Teacher Residency in the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Colorado Denver. She enjoys the intersectionality of her job working directly with students, staff, faculty and administrators. During her 21 years in education, the first 16 years were in several roles in Denver Public Schools–bilingual teacher, reading interventionist, facilitator, and teacher leader. Her research interests include asset-based and culturally sustaining pedagogies, positive resistance such as resilient resistance and transformational resistance, and equity practices with first generation, multilingual, and students of color across the PK-university spectrum. She advocates for leveraging the assets students already possess and how to value, respect, affirm and make them visible. She is also passionate about making system level changes that impact the development and growth of minoritized communities. Her EdD is in Educational Leadership and Equity focused on Latinx Learners and Communities, MA in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis on Bilingual Education and BA in Psychology.
