The Edward Ginsberg Center for Community Service and Learning
Graduate Academic Liaison
LaTara McLemore is a doctoral student in the English Language and Literature program, housed in the English Department. As a Graduate Academic Liaison, LaTara facilitates workshops designed to support Michigan students who aim to responsibly work and learn with local community organizations. A former 12th grade English teacher and very proud Chicago native, LaTara is invested in integrating responsive teaching practices and methods of critical care into her classroom operations and culture--investments which are foundational to her work as a Liaison. When she's not going for long walks or baking too many cookies to eat on her own, you can find LaTara reading obsessively for her upcoming Preliminary Exams.
