In this article, we present narratives that illustrate how Latina/Chicana teachers embody care through their pedagogical practices and interpersonal relationships with their Latinx students. We identify two foundational components of Latina/Chicana embodied pedagogies of care (EPC): (1) practicing a shared understanding of care and (2) developing a shared community of care. Through our Latina/Chicana EPC framework, educators can consider how to tailor their own pedagogies to best work with Latinx students and other culturally and linguistically diverse students. We utilized qualitative critical reflections and meta-study methods to analyze our separate research studies and present a new theoretical framework.
