Blogger and Former Teacher

Albuquerque, New Mexico

Seth Saavedra is a New Mexican, born and raised. Fueled by his upbringing in public housing and public schools, he has an unwavering commitment to improving New Mexico’s public schools, particularly for those students and communities who are least served by the current system.

Seth was formerly a middle school teacher in Bridgeport, Connecticut, through Teach For America. He triple-majored in English, philosophy and economics at the University of New Mexico and went to Del Norte High School before that.

He’s a proud advocate, agitator, and alchemist. He’s a self-admitted green chile addict. He spends most of his time with family and meandering around New Mexico.
