Do Your Lessons Love Your Students? Creative Education for Social Change

Strengthen culturally and contextually responsive teaching by designing curricula that leads to equitable, humanized outcomes. 

"Do Your Lessons Love Your Students shows what it means to let the arts lead us to unexpected healing places - the place learners deserve to explore."
-Susie Wise, Author of Design for Belonging: How to Build Inclusion and Collaboration in Your Communities.


“Mariah and Jessa of Studio Pathways truly embody in their every action in the way they approach their work, what it means to use love as a transformative vehicle to address social justice and healing in our communities. It’s been an honor to work with them and learn from them through my work as director of leadership and social change program at Stanford University.” -Diane Friedlaender, Stanford University

"Jessa and Mariah are the founders and principals of Studio Pathways. I have known them for quite some time and have been really impressed with how they have taken their work as educators and applied that knowledge to change-making in other institutional spaces. In fact, they just facilitated a grantee convening for us late last month. I know of no other consultant as skilled as they are at creating equitable, creative, engaging and challenging spaces for learning.” -Jessica Mele, Program Officer, Performing Arts, The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation

"I feel like this is a critical step for me in my efforts to be a more effective equity leader. I think the iterative nature of these sessions are critical if we're really going to achieve the level of learning and systems change needed to really impact outcomes." -Nick Girimonte; Assistant Superintendent of Ed.
