I’ve Seen What Happens When Kids Aren’t Taught Well: This is Why I’m a Teacher Advocate

Krista Pregony – 11 de marzo de 2019

When I finished my service with AmeriCorps in 2016, I wasn’t sure that I wanted to continue teaching. But when I moved back East, I came across Success Academy. The model seemed exactly what my former students had needed, but what attracted me even more was the dual mission. It wasn’t enough for the kids in my own classroom to learn well; I wanted to be part of an organization working toward bringing great education to all students.

Success Academy – February 8, 2019

Success Academy Teacher Activist Stages a Comeback

Stephen Ferrell – August 17, 2018

It’s often said that teachers wear many hats throughout their careers. In May, that saying took on a very personal meaning when we were told that our school, SA Lafayette Middle School, would likely not be allowed to open because of a bureaucratic technicality. I was determined to fight for our kids, so I spent the past few months growing not only as an educator and as an artist, but also as an activist and advocate.

Success Academy – April 10, 2018

When Nolan McDaniel and Malik Sahabi first unveiled their poem — a thought-provoking spoken-word piece that they coauthored — it was in front of an auditorium packed with scholars, teachers, and families.

Since then, the entire school has been talking about “Black Boy, White Man”.

Scholars Debate First Amendment Rights, Hate, and Confederate Statues

Sarah Hendrickson – October 2, 2017

I’m always inspired by how much our scholars care about the world around them, and I’d been looking forward to this class discussion ever since summer T School, when I saw the topic on the history syllabus for middle school students.

When Zombies Attack, Mathematicians Save the Day

Cassondra Nealon – April 27, 2017

Most people don’t know this, but there are leading math educators whose celebrity status rivals Hollywood’s favorite movie stars. At least among math teachers!
