This is very fitting to be writing my first Blog post, for my first website, for my first teaching stint in Higher Education.  I am going on my 20th year in Urban Education and actually, this is where my journey began, right where you are now, in my first course as a Donovan Urban Teacher Scholar, only it was 1997! My journey began as a student teacher and substitute in Boston Public Schools and then as I was wrapping up my Master’s, I was hired as a Math and Science teacher at Epiphany where after several year, I became the principal (don’t worry, you will hear all about this journey!).

So congratulations on making the decision to invest in our collective future and committing to a career not for the faint of heart!
