Adriana D. Briscoe, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology at University of California, Irvine writes, “Months after reading Glenda Flores’ award-winning book, Latina Teachers, I couldn’t stop thinking about the teachers I’d had and the role they played in my becoming a scientist. I am one of a handful of U.S.-born Mexican-American scientists in evolutionary biology. Last year, the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science honored me with the Distinguished Scientist Award for my research and for my efforts to promote diversity in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).”
