Cynthia makes learning come alive for her students by such projects as the recreation of the underground railroad to observe Black History Month. When she conducts the lesson, it ends with the reading of the final chapter of a book in a black tunnel designed to make students feel like they are running away at night.
“Public education is the great equalizer,” says Cynthia. “Public schools bring together children and families from all socio-economic, racial/ethnic backgrounds and provide them with access to a free and quality education.” Also in her words, “These educators entered the profession as a calling and have dedicated their lives to young people. In my opinion, public education is second to none.”
