Genezaret Cardoso with Herb Tuyay

Genezaret Cardoso, the 2023 Sabrina Tuyay Memorial Fellow, with Herb Tuyay

Genezaret Cardoso has been chosen as the 2023 Dr. Sabrina Tuyay Memorial Fellowship recipient. This memorial fellowship acknowledges teacher candidates who have shown a commitment to providing thoughtful literacy and English language instruction to elementary-age and/or special education students.

For twelve years, until her untimely death in June 2005, Dr. Sabrina Tuyay taught Literacy/Language Arts Methods and Procedures courses in the Teacher Education Program. What distinguished Sabrina was her passionate dedication to ensuring that teachers become critical thinkers and risk takers, leaders willing to push boundaries so that all students can optimally learn to read and write and think.

Genezaret Cardoso attended CSU Channel Islands for her undergraduate degree. Before coming to the Teacher Education Program (TEP), she was a preschool teacher and loved it. She joined TEP because she wanted to continue making a difference at the elementary school level.
