Annie Delgado is a high school teacher from California’s Central Valley. She has taught high school women’s studies since 2008. In 2015, she was selected as a semi-finalist for California Teacher of the Year and was recognized in 2016 as a Champion of Change by the Obama Administration for her work with marginalized girls. Her paper, which outlines the ways in which one can defy cultural norms by launching women’s studies in the high school setting, can be found in Feminist Pedagogy, Practice, and Activism: Improving the Lives of Girls and Women. Annie consistently works to advance issues in equity, as they are a driving force in that which she teaches and the manner in which she lives her life. She earned her degree in political science from Trinity University in Washington, DC, her Master’s in Education from Chapman University, and her JD from Catholic University. She and her husband are both teachers who are raising their son and daughter along with their three rescue dogs.
