Ingrid Tuchband has been working in education for over 20 years. In 1995, she began working as an elementary school teacher. In 2000, she stopped formally teaching to stay at home with her young children. In 2011, she resumed work at a Catholic school teaching sixth and seventh graders. As a Jewish teacher, she felt welcomed and accepted into the school community. For the past ten years, Ingrid has taught sixth grade at Miller Creek Middle School. Working collaboratively with her team, she continues to develop and deliver curriculum that focuses on social justice and diversity. Ingrid continues to find reading materials that provide windows and mirrors for her students to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and each other.
