Second Grade Assistant Teacher
Phoenix Tower grew up in Boston, MA, and took the first opportunity that presented itself to move to sunny California in 2014. They have journeyed the roles of student and teacher on both the East and West Coasts, guided by their dedication to collective learning and liberation. Phoenix’s lifelong aspiration to experience aliveness, learn from each other and the world, and share intergenerational wisdom and insights brought them to Black Pine Circle School. Phoenix is excited to continue learning and growing alongside their students, colleagues, and the entire Black Pine Circle community as the second grade assistant teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. They joined BPC in 2020 and have been teaching in various roles since 2018.
Why I Work with Children
I love to laugh, be inspired, look at things from a different perspective, and have fun!
A Favorite Book
Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi, a book that validated and gave me language for a unique sense of self, spirit, gender, and multiplicity.
My favorite food is chocolate :)
