Collaborating with Re-Imagining Migration has strengthened our approach to ensuring that immigrant origin students, especially our Multilingual Learners and English Language Learners, are able to share their inspiring stories of immigration and become advocates for themselves and their communities.
Rachel Hoff, Senior Director, ENL/ELA, Office of Multilingual Learners, New York Department of Education.
Through its timely programs and excellent educational resources, Re-Imagining Migration is changing the way that we think, teach, and learn about the migration experience and its importance to the United States. I have been privileged to work with the team on a number of projects, but I also rely on Re-Imagining Migration resources in my classroom as well! The team is doing valuable, impactful work that benefits all of us.

As an educator, the Re-Imagining Migration Learning arc has provided me with a framework with which I can teach about migration to both migrant and non-migrant students in a thoughtful and deliberate manner. With their resources, I am able to teach migration as part of the broader human experience, and build empathy through learning with my students. I now feel prepared to teach about migration and to teach migrant students with knowledge and care.”
Lauren Schultz, Charlotte-Mecklenberg Public Schools
“In an academic world that stays mired in chasing testing data, Re-Imagining Migration stands as a beacon of light reminding us of what is truly worth learning: empathy, caring, global mindedness, justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.…As discourse about the immigrant experience in America is incomplete without a deep dive into the Indigenous, Mexicans, Africans (trafficked into enslavement), I appreciate and applaud Re-Imagining Migration’s efforts to interrogate the inconvenient truths about human migration in America.”
Sher Anderson, Montgomery County Public Schools
“I have the honor of teaching immigrant-origin students from across the globe. Too often I find my students are made to feel othered, that they don’t belong. Re-imagining Migration is doing powerful work helping educators shift how they teach about migration and helping young people (and older folks) understand that everyone has stories of movement across countries and continents. This is essential for making our schools more welcoming and inclusive.”
Jessica Lander, Lowell Public Schools
“The training Re-imagining Migration provided was the most transformative week of my life! Thank you for all you do and the support you generously give us to be the best versions of ourselves in and out of the classroom!”
Kathryn Tepedino, Morristown Public Schools
“Re-imagining Migration not only has the frameworks and resources we need for a system-wide mindset shift towards humanity, it also has the openness of structure and generosity of spirit to function as a highly imaginative and constructive partner in changing the world with other visionary entrepreneurs”
