The Dr. Karen M. Trujillo Memorial Foundation, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a better future for all children by providing scholarships to aspiring teachers in New Mexico.
The foundation was created in memory of the late Dr. Karen M. Trujillo who was a lifelong educator and advocate for students and teachers here in New Mexico.
Dr. Karen M. Trujillo was a lifelong learner and educator that believed New Mexico was filled with the right people and resources who could help uplift and lead the state in education. Trujillo was a proud Aggie, receiving her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mathematics education from New Mexico State University. In 1997, she received her Ph.D. in secondary education, mathematics, curriculum and instruction, also at NMSU.
Trujillo was an educator for many years before making her way back to her alma mater to serve as the Director of the Alliance for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning where she established Educators Rising.
Educators Rising cultivates a new generation of highly skilled educators by guiding young people on a path from middle/high school through college and into their teaching career. Paving a way for homegrown educators will infuse their passion to serving their communities through public education
Social media has erupted in millions of examples of why being a “Being a Karen” isn’t necessarily the best display of good character.
Why is the internet picking on the Karen’s of the world?
The Dr. Karen M. Trujillo Memorial Foundation launched last year with the hashtag #BeAKarenNM not as a reminder of those memes we are all familiar with, but to challenge you to be the Karen we knew. Karen Trujillo lived by some pretty simple rules: Put our children first. Value our teachers. In competition and in life, always be a good sport that lifts others up instead of tearing them down. Through the foundation, our goal is to provide scholarships and opportunities to grow the quality and quantity of our educators in New Mexico.
So when you see our hashtag, or scroll past a post about the “other” Karen’s, remember what #BeAKarenNM exemplifies. Help us be the change the world needs for our students, our teachers, and our future.
Karen wouldn’t want it any other way.
To Be a Karen NM, means to: Believe in others, empower, be authentic, put kids first, do all things with grace, be resilient, be exemplary, have no fear of failure, be nurturing, be mindful. #FinishStrong
