Animo Green Dot Dedication

Today we dedicated our high school: Green Dot's Animo Jefferson Charter High School. Yes, it is a large name. However, "large" is not what this school is about. During the dedication, I felt extremely proud at being a green dot teacher and an extreme excitement as to the nature of educational reform that my students and I are pioneering. There was a contagious energy in the air at Victory Baptist Church in South Central this morning...probably because there was a consensus that our students (along with all of the other 5 Green Dot Animo Schools) were determined to make it to college.

And we are determined to get them there...with small schools, high standards, and one-on-one parent involvement.

Today's 9/11. Woke up this morning to MSNBC's rebroadcast of the coverage on the attack on the twin towers on 9/11. Gosh the pictures were so vivid. It was like it happened yesterday. I remember where I was--in bed. Got a phone call from my then-girlfriend about the attack. In unbelief I turned on the same television (located in the same part of the room) to watch the aftermath. By this time, only WTC Tower #1 had fallen; #2 was still standing, heavily damaged.
Today, I would have to say life is much different post-9/11. It's amazing how one day could have such an effect on you.
