Sophia Sarigianides studies efforts to effect antiracist literature instruction with white teacher candidates and white students, as well as the role of adolescent constructs in young adult literature and in teacher thinking.
Before coming to Westfield State University, Sophia Sarigianides taught graduate English Education courses at Teachers College, Columbia University. Prior to her work in New York City, she taught secondary English at the middle and high school levels for ten years. As a transplant to Western Massachusetts she has fallen anew for autumn’s fall, has started cross-country skiing, and awaits her first view of a not-too-hungry bear.
