I am a teacher and a counselor at Leadership Public Schools in Richmond, CA. My background is in College Counseling and in I teach an Honors Thesis English Class for seniors. The curriculum for the class centers on Education Justice. I am also the Summer Programs Coordinator and the Alumni Coordinator. I see Civic Leadership as a critical key to College Readiness.
Hi Ellen! I have run service learning programs in Chicago, at the college level and have taught at the Civic Leadership Institute, a service learning program at Berkeley for students from all over the world. I have a good sense of best practices but have never tried it locally at high schools in the Bay. I am SO excited about the concept of students from different schools coming together for this. In the pilot year I may stick to just LPS students, but significnat learning for students could happen through cross-school dialogue. Glad to hear you're in the Bay too! I would love any feedback you have and will look out for your idea:)
