An Unguided Tour of AAMA Manhood Development Classroom
On Back to School Night
Tuesday, September 19, 2017 was back to school night. Aspire and Achieve Members along with
100 Black Men Members were on hand to lend support to Manhood Development Teacher, Mr. Harris, and to speak to the students and parents about our organizations. We spoke about the work we do, the resources we offer and the support we give to our Kings.
We were happy to be visited by former AAMA teacher Lamar Hancock, who is now in charge of Literacy in the OUSD Office of Equity. And Principal Staci Ross-Morrison stopped by to meet our members and thank us for the support we offer.
When you step inside our portable classroom, TP8, you can't help but be impressed by the scope of the curriculum Mr. Harris has, and the ways he seeks to support, encourage and challenge our Kings to not only be empowered, but to also help the other Kings in the class. We are thrilled with the new teacher and the new class and we look forward to making 2017-2018 our best year yet!
