Ismael Thaore’s Story
Ismael teaches sociology at McMaster.
What is your proudest teaching moment?
Reading the reflection pieces of my students that reflect real change in their thinking and development of critical thought.
How do you use your knowledge, research skills, and teaching ability to improve your community?
I engage in social organizing with anti-oppression groups and offer my academic and research skill, and other privileges for the struggle for justice. I also make educational documentaries.
What challenges do you face at work?
I am an under-paid, over-exploited, one-term contract worker.
