Assistant Professor of English Education, Arizona State University

Gabriel T. Acevedo Velázquez has been a dancer, actor, podcaster, film critic, researcher, academic, and educator for over ten years. He holds degrees from the University of Puerto Rico and The Pennsylvania State University. He has taught every grade from kindergarten to college-level courses. He resides in Arizona, where he is an Assistant Professor of English Education at Arizona State University. He holds his identity as a Puerto Rican, born and raised, and a gay man close to his heart. This allows him to view the world through such prisms and enables those lenses to to elevate his work to bring those experiences to the forefront. Engaging with literature, pop culture, teaching methods, and queer and Latinx identities, he wishes to close gaps within critical pedagogy.
