Ace (he/they) is a teacher first and foremost. Ace received his MA in communication with an emphasis in rhetoric and culture from CU Boulder in 2016. His research focused on queer worldmaking, counterpublics, and queer pedagogy. He has since brought this theoretical background into practice through K-12 teaching. He currently works as a middle- and high-school teacher librarian at a local K-12 school, teaching research and speaking skills and supervising the Queer Student Union. Ace is excited to come back to college-level teaching and get to explore the content of gender and communication with students in depth.
