Teaching STEM #4Real podcast season 2 episode 11
Welcome back to the season two finale of Teaching STEM #4Real! Today, we are thrilled to be joined by Resego Mooki!

Resego is a former middle school teacher in Los Angeles, where she taught and shared her love for science. She has a Bachelor of Arts in Public Health-Global Health from the University of Washington and holds a Masters in Education from Loyola Marymount University. Currently, she works at TeachFX where she continues to make a tangible impact on expanding educational equity by empowering teachers to foster deeper learning through meaningful, equitable, conversational classrooms using AI technology.

In this episode, Resego will talk to us about how she got into teaching, identity and belonging in STEM, and what TeachFX is working toward. We’ll also discuss how vulnerable it is for teachers to open up their classroom to critique but also how important it is to do so in order to increase student speaking. Last but not least, Resego will chat with us about the steps TeachFX helps teachers take to improve student participation, other uses of TeachFX, and how she would navigate some of the systems blocking change. Keep listening to hear more!
