Ni Hao! My name is Mercedes Yarbrough students know me as Miss Mercedes. I am a multi-racial woman mixed with Black, White, and Native American from the White Earth Ojibwa tribe. I am a mother to 4 BOYS! Besides my family :) , I LOVE sneakers, sports, and creating new things. I have worked in the education system for 10 years. Over the last decade I specialized working in Special Education, behavior, and spent my summers serving as a Freedom School Servant Leader Intern. During this time I became aware of the broken inequality in the school system. Much of the curriculum was outdated and was not culturally relevant reflecting the students. Growing up I remember being the only brown girl in the room learning about slavery and all eyes were on me to see my reaction. I wanted to change that so I created curriculum that makes our kids of color feel empowered by their history and not ashamed. After covid I noticed how the world was shifting into a digital world. So decided to create Mizz Mercedez which is me in the virtual world making learning fun through Comics, Games and Cartoon Animations teaching culturally relevant curriculum. Besides creating I am a big advocate for LOVE IS POWER! I believe that whenever you do anything with love it will bring power to the situation!
