Welcome and thank you for visiting this site which was created to keep alive the life work of Larissa. Our intent is for this site to live, grow, and embody the critical work that she started as a teacher and advocate for children. Through this site you will get to know Larissa and connect with others whose lives she has touched and who have in different ways continued in the path she started to create a socially and equitably just world for children. So please linger, stay a while, and come back often!
To start you may want to listen to a podcast of a memorial given by Dr. Vivian Vasquez during the preview opening of the Larissa Gerstel Critical Literacy Collection at AU. Click on the arrow in the icon at the start of this post to begin listening. The music on the podcast is Children by Alexander Blu and it was produced by Andy Bilodeau.
