On September 22, 2009 the New Jersey Department of Education approved the Barack Obama Green Charter High School. Obama High is projected to start with 120
students in grades 9 and 10 and expand to 240 students in grades 9
to 12. The school is projected to open its doors in September, 2010. Congratulations to Ms Safiyah Sadiq, Mr. Steven King, and Ms Alisa Barnes the hard working co-founders! Guerilla Educators is proud to be associated with this worthy educational endeavor.
I recently had the privilege of re-connecting with Amy, who was a
student in my 4th grade class in 1994 at Cook-Wissahickon Elementary
School in Philadelphia. Amy has graduated from Penn State, is a
working professional, and is out on her own making her mark. Lo and
behold, in her bedroom at her parents house there hangs the map -THE
MAP- she created in Room 211 of the United States of America. In Amy's
The giant loopy little-kid handwriting that used to proclaim "The
Country Of The United States Of America" across the top, as well as
firmly marking both oceans and the Gulf of Mexico, has faded into
near-oblivion. Also, why did I only label one of the Great Lakes? ALSO,
I tried to number them in the order they appear in the Map Rap, but I'm
pretty sure I fudged that too.
But! I still have it on display- that's got to count for something, right?
This was part of what I termed the Geography Literacy Series and included (heaven help my self esteem) the Map Rap and the Eur-Rap.
If any other former students still have their maps from their time in Room 211 at Cook_Wiss, send them along.
Last week, gold hit $1,000/oz and has basically stayed above that magic number ever since. WOW! I'd be happy to
share whatever insights I may have to anyone who wants to diversify some assets into
precious metals. I think numismatic gold is the play.
Day 2 of the Friendship Tech
Prep Academy Charter School Project Based Service Learning Workshop,
presented by Guerilla Educators consisted in large part, of authentic
hands-on demonstrations (thanks to Emily Curley of the Alliance to Save
Energy) of what the participants learned in Day 1 about the Project
Based methodologies. Take a look...
Under the leadership of Ms Natalie Gordon, the Principal and co-founder
of Friendship Tech, educators there took part in this Professional
Development which was designed to give them the tools to conduct
hands-on projects with their students. Special thanks also to Ms
Alicia Adams, Director of Professional Development for Friendship
Charter Schools. Good luck in your first year of operation, Tech!
