Like most educators who come from inner-city upbringings, Ms. Murdock is deeply passionate about creating safe spaces for developing critical thinking and learner identity, as well as facilitating equitable pedagogy in the classroom. Throughout this video, you will get a glance at Dominique's research focus, her reflections on adapting to Taiwan, and some candid insight on the ups and downs of living and working on the other side of her world.
