My Students

Our program seeks to develop thoughtful and intelligent leaders for our school community and all future communities they will be a part of. Our school is nestled in a community rich in history, but also buffeted by many changes over time.

I teach some incredible young men and women in a gifted education program at a Title I high school.

We encourage these scholars daily to "level up" and best the best versions of themselves and they deliver despite some serious life challenges.

My Project

We are fortunate to teach and learn at a historic high school, but many of our scholars are unaware of that history, or even the history of our local community. Local history often gets neglected in high school history and civics courses that focus on national and global studies.

We will use Color & Character as a foundation text for a scholar-led exploration of school and local history.

It will also supplement a study of the Civil Rights Movement at both the local and national levels. Scholars will use this knowledge to initiate local oral history and service learning projects.
