William D. Kelley School
2020 Seminar Enrollment: A Visual Approach to Learning Math

My teaching career started over 10 years ago at Russell Byers Charter School as a 4 year old kindergarten teaching assistant. I am currently a 5th grade teacher at William D. Kelley Elementary. I applied to TIP because I became interested in writing curriculum that was not reflected in the text books that I had to teach from. Specifically with social studies and the history of Black people. I wanted to expose students to alternative narratives that were not being told about Black people the good, bad and the ugly. My goal is to provide students with a opportunity to critically analyze history in order to empower students to create the change that they want to see in the world. TIP has allowed me to explored many alternative narratives about Black people from credible sources such as UPENN libraries. Another value TIP offers is the ability to engage and collaborate with other educators who share a similar educational visions.
