New School Year, New Teacher, New Classroom and New Possibilities

The 2017-2018 School Year began on August 21st.

Our former AAMA teacher, Lamar Hancock, is now working at OUSD in charge of Literacy in the Office of Equity. (Hope I got the title right). Lamar will be missed, but he has left our Kings in very good hands. Our new teacher in the Manhood Development Class is Mr. Sekou Harris. And he will be teaching in a different classroom. Portable Classroom TP8.

I met Mr. Harris on Thursday, August 31. I was impressed by his plans for the class, the books to be used in class, including a book on investment, and most impressed by the way he worked with our Kings and Max and I could see the positive, encouraging way he worked with our Kings. It's going to be an exciting year. 

Max, of course, had already met Mr Harris the week before and this Thursday he was again working with students in two different classrooms.
