Mx. Abril (AB) Macias (they y elle)

Hi! My name is Abril Macias and I am one of the fourth-grade educators at Online Elementary School. This is my second year teaching general elementary and my first year teaching virtual school! Exploring new possibilities with scholars and fellow educators is partly why I love being part of intergenerational school learning communities!  Teaching on the occupied land of Dakhóta Oyáte and honoring the culture bearers is a responsibility that I became more aware of while teaching Physical Education for two years at American Indian Magnet School. Connecting with my Indigenous roots through Danza has supported me in fulfilling that goal for myself. 

On my time off, I enjoy playing board and card games with family and friends, connecting with nature in and around the Twin Cities, and supporting local organizations and artists.
