Taryn Marshall

Taryn Marshall is Lower and Upper School History Instructor at Marlborough School, Los Angeles. Since earning her M. Ed. at UCLA’s School of Education, she has been a founding history teacher for a girls’ public charter middle school in Los Angeles valley, and then transitioned to Marlborough in 2020. In her current position at Marlborough, she teaches a 7th grade Civics and Citizenship course, an interdisciplinary 10th grade American Studies History course, and advises multiple groups of 12th grade students in Honors Research in Social Sciences and Capstone internship program. Taryn’s interest lies in the intersectionality of gender equity, as can be reflected in her experiences such as earning her B.A. in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies from a women’s college, and working with a feminist non-profit for high school students in Newark, NJ. Her current interest is thinking about how to center teacher and students’ authentic selves for joy and learning in the classroom.

Decentering the Western Canon: Humanities Curriculum Cohort

CATDC’s Humanities Curriculum Cohort will provide a space where teachers can share what's working for them, get support on what's not yet working optimally in their classrooms, and pilot new strategies using critical friends or lesson study protocols. This group will also support navigating conversations with colleagues about culturally responsive teaching practices. Participants will gain classroom strategies, routines, and protocols that center the unique needs of their students.
