Charles FitzGibbon is a Program Associate with Facing History and Ourselves. An educator with over a decade of experience, he has taught abroad in Sierra Leone as well as domestically in K-12 public schools in the Greater Boston Area and in New York City.
Charles identifies as biracial, and is both a child of an immigrant and a fifth generation New Yorker. He brings a global/local lens to his pedagogical approach to teaching and learning as a means of expanding critical consciousness along the lines of race, identity and history.
At Facing History, Charles works with teachers and school leaders across New England to develop and deepen a critical pedagogy that centers on student civic agency, and equity and justice in schooling. He received his MA in Social Studies Education from Teachers College at Columbia University.
