Learn about the creators of this website and why they chose the particular content they did.

It is vital to have a strong grasp of the subject area that you are teaching in the classroom. But a strong teacher in the urban setting must also realize that it goes far beyond just the material.  There is a strong need for urban educators to show enthusiasm for their subject matter, and as a teacher we want our students to feel the same passion we do for the material, but also we need to see how to go above and beyond the content.  It takes understanding, being a positive role model, and thinking outside the box in terms of pedagogical techniques to provide a fulfilling learning experience. 

H
