With the help of foundational mentorship from Drs. Django Paris, Mary Eunice Romero-Little, Simon Ortiz, Teresa McCarty, Beverly Chin and so many others, he earned his Ph.D. in Curriculum Instruction. In his search to find a position that valued and validated his interdisciplinary work (at the intersections of Curriculum and Instruction, Language Arts, Assets-Based Pedagogies, and American Indian Studies), San Pedro took the position of assistant professor in the Department of Teaching and Learning at Ohio State University (OSU). In 2019, he earned tenure at OSU and is an associate professor in Critical Studies in Education: Race, Justice, and Equity. San Pedro’s scholarship has transitioned from in-school learning contexts into home and community contexts—understanding the ways that lessons of Indigeneity are taught intergenerationally among Native American families. These lessons offer educators, community members, and parents a more nuanced understanding of what education can and should be for youth, building with his original purposes and intentions to transform educational systems to more fully embrace and see the cultural and tribal contributions of youth and the communities that collectively raise them. Wherever he may physically live, western Montana has always been his connection to home and a big part of where his heart resides.
