Tiphani Davis has worked in education for over a decade and was recently awarded the Fulbright Distinguished Arts in Teaching award. She has traveled to the Netherlands to conduct research on transformative learning pedagogies through sustainability education curriculum and policies under the mentorship of Dr. Arjen Wals from Wageningen University.

For her doctoral work at University of Wisconsin Stevens Point, Tiphani seeks to identify key environmental education policies and sustainability education programs in schools, both nationally and internationally, specifically in vocational schools, and examine how educator professional developments are designed to include sustainability education. She has written for Students First and Education Post applying a critical lens to the state of education in rural communities and is currently teaching 12th grade English, Journalism, and Photojournalism at Morgantown High School in Morgantown, West Virginia. 

Tiphani earned her B.S. from the University of Louisville in Philosophy and her M.F.A from Chatham University in Creative Writing. She is currently residing in Haarlem with her husband, two daughters. 

Regrettably, due to the break-out of COVID19 Tiphani had to return to the United States earlier than planned this Spring.
