Tereza Bottman's background is primarily in multicultural education with an emphasis on writing and social justice. She holds a Master of Education degree from Portland State University and currently teaches elementary-level English language learners in Portland, Oregon. Tereza's passion for social & racial justice has spurred her to create various venues highlighting underrepresented voices and important, yet often sidelined issues. Her most recent undertaking is "Project Interlaced," a podcast featuring personal stories which explore the dynamics of interracial friendships. In summer 2010, she was a Peace Fellow with the Advocacy Project, focusing on human rights and the Roma in the Czech Republic, the country where she was born and raised. An upcoming project is "Parents Talk Race," a dialogue opportunity for adults interested in exploring experiences around parenting through the lens of race in our highly racialized society.
