Dr. Rosa M. Jiménez is an Associate Professor in the International and Multicultural Education Department at the University of San Francisco. Her research examines K-12 classroom pedagogies and theoretical principles necessary for conceptualizing and enacting critical language education and culturally responsive learning environments, especially with Latina/o and immigrant student populations. Dr. Jiménez has conducted classroom-based research in several K-12 contexts including the California Central Valley, Los Angeles, Arizona, and the San Francisco Bay Area. Her research stems from her life experiences as a daughter of working-class Mexican immigrants and from her work experiences as a social studies teacher of bilingual immigrant youth. Her research has been supported by the Spencer Foundation and the National Council of Teachers of English Research Foundation/Cultivating New Voices. Dr. Jiménez has over twenty years of experience working with K-12 public schools as a bilingual social studies teacher, literacy coach, and educational researcher.
