A Hispanic Woman in Educational Leadership in Northern New Mexico: An Auto-Ethnography
Roybal, Anita M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, New Mexico State University
"Hispanic Woman in Educational Leadership in Northern New Mexico" is an auto-ethnographic study which documents my experience as a Hispanic female elementary principal during one school term starting in July 2010 and ending in June 2011. Hispanic females outnumber men in the classroom as educators, especially at the elementary level; however, there are very few women in administrative positions. This phenomenon creates a uniquely challenging experience for Hispanic women because of their minority status(es). This study attempts to chronicle my own navigation, negotiation and understanding of my own professional experience as an administrator within this context. Specifically, this study addresses the following question: How does Latina Feminist Theory and "mujerista" theology inform the one-year ethnographic experience of a Hispanic female principal in northern New Mexico?
