Randelle has worked in education for 20+ years with children from birth to 18 years of age, as well as an adult educator, trainer, and instructor. Today, along with being a graduate and adjunct instructor for Erikson, he coordinates in-school and out-of-school time programs for a non-profit in Chicago that utilizes the transformative power of the arts and SEL to support the creation of spaces for co-learning, collaboration, and community for children and families throughout the Chicagoland area.

Randelle teaches SEL T494: Family, Community, and Policy

As a first-generation Filipinx child growing up in Chicago, who struggled academically, socially, and emotionally, and often attempted to navigate the challenges of my expanding linguistic repertoire and Philippine and American identities alone, I strive to support children and families, so they do not feel the need to navigate their own challenges by themselves. While I may never be able to fully understand the intersecting barriers, traumas, and challenges that the children and families of our diverse community face, I know that having people who are reflective, deeply listen, care, and try to provide a sense of belonging can help foster a culture and climate that is motivated to support each other for our mutual learning, growth, and thriving.
