Dr. Amber Lynwood is an Assistant Professor in the School of Education at Azusa Pacific University. She earned her Ed. D. in Leadership from University of Southern California’s Rossier School of Education. Dr. Lynwood nurtures leadership qualities in preservice teachers by focusing on themes of personal responsibility, accountability, and initiative in credential coursework. Her publications and interests center around capacity building, with specific attention to the development of knowledge and skill in literacy instruction and relationship building, both as a means of increasing student achievement. Dr. Lynwood’s current work emphasizes the need for historical education and is addressing this need through the development of a supplemental curriculum for school-aged children. The curriculum is designed to broaden the historical narrative of Black Americans to include both their numerous and significant contributions to American History, and complex personal characteristics that enabled them to persevere and overcome despite difficulty.
