    BioI celebrate the principle of Ujima - collective work and responsibility. Centering this idea, my life vision is the pursuit of purpose-driven passion. My mission is to create joyful opportunities that strengthen the sustainability of communities through the transformative power of academic and social engagement and enterprise.

    After graduating with my BA in psychology in 2002 from Stanford University, I married my college sweetheart - Olatunde Sobomehin - and we started our fantastic family of six. I took a long-term sabbatical from industry work to co-homeschool our four children - Tayo, Temi, Tati, & Taiye - through their preschool and early elementary years. During that time, I co-founded two social ventures - Esface, Inc. and Team Esface Basketball Academy - and worked with local organizations like Kapor Center, The Primary School, The Nueva School, Live In Peace, Inc, RAFA, SMASH, and Boys & Girls Clubs of the Peninsula. In 2017 I co-founded StreetCode Academy, a nonprofit with a vision of "Innovation for Everyone." As the Chief Education Officer at StreetCode Academy, I co-design educational experiences that help students develop creative confidence and technical skills in coding, entrepreneurship, and design.

    In 2018 I was elected to serve as a trustee for the Ravenswood City School District, where I currently am the presiding Vice President of the Board. I also returned to school to pursue graduate studies earning an MEd in Educational Leadership and Education Policy from the University of Texas at Arlington. I felt the call to return to school again during the pandemic. I applied and was accepted to the Stanford Graduate School of Education PhD program, where I am currently cross-specializing in Learning Sciences and Technology Design and Curriculum & Teacher Education. As a learning scientist, I examine the intersection of learning, innovation, technology education, and joy to create scholarship, tools, and services that promote critical care, connection, and creation in learning experiences. I hope to progress conversations within the learning sciences concerning joyful learning as a generative approach to more holistic, restorative, enlivened learning environments. I believe in pedagogies of love as a solution for peace within ourselves and with one another, and I view the education sector as a powerful resource to call attention to experiences of inequity and opportunities for positive societal change.

    BioIn pursuit of understanding education’s nexus to policy and law, I am obtaining a Master of Arts in International Education Policy Analysis at the Stanford Graduate School of Education. As an international educator specializing in refugee education, I worked alongside the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees in Sweden and as a Fulbright Scholar in the Canary Islands off of Western Africa. In my aspirations to collaborate with policymakers to reconceptualize equitable educational outcomes that support cultural competencies within our increasingly interdependent globe, I have partnered with Reach The World, Save The Children, and the U.S Department of Cultural Affairs as an EducationUSA ambassador, and the Comparative and International Education Society. In our zeitgeist, I believe a culturally responsive curriculum will become imperative as we prepare our children to cohesively work worldwide to address issues of war, poverty, environmental health, and human rights. My research interests encompass inclusive global educational policies, the United Nations, refugee education equity, and international and comparative education.

    BioMegumi Takada is a doctoral candidate in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. Her research centers around children’s literacy experiences in the early elementary school years, with a special interest in designing literacy instruction that promotes student agency and school belonging. Her most recent work focuses on multilingual writing, working with elementary school teachers to design writing instruction that leverages multilingual students' languages, cultures, and identities. Her work is driven by her former experience as a public school teacher in South Korea and Seattle, as well as her transnational, translingual experiences growing up cross-culturally in California and Japan. She is a recipient of the Fulbright teaching fellowship and graduated from Wellesley College with a degree in neuroscience and elementary teaching credentials.
