HGSE Equity Collaboration with Harvard Graduate School of Education Students

HGSE Equity Collaboration with Harvard Graduate School of Education Students
Posted on 10/04/2017
This year the FMA will continue its collaboration with the Harvard Graduate School of Education A397 course that focuses on issues of race and social justice in schools. This year we have the honor of working with four graduate students who will be focusing their time on researching and testing out equity and social justice based strategies and curricula for the school community. These students will be working alongside two of our school staff, Cherie Coulson, our school counselor, and Tonya Katz, one of our second grade teachers. These two teachers will also be participating in the Ed school course alongside the graduate students course for the remainder of the school year. Please join me in welcoming these graduate students. We look forward to our collaboration.
