Teacher Narrative: Winnie
- 251 Downloads
Winnie is an African American woman who came to teaching after a successful first career in finance. She is an outsider in the school where she teaches a largely Latino population with a faculty of younger, white teachers. She initially rejects the term “outsider,” but after consideration and study, embraces it as a strength. In her school, Winnie is a sought-after educator and models positive, inclusive interactions for her students as well as other teachers.
