18 year-old Advocates for Worthwhile Teaching

Check out Sinnea Douglas, a 2011 grad of Philadelphia's Science Leadership Academy (SLA), share her take on worthwhile teaching in the poem "When I become a teacher."

Sinnea started working with poetry in Matthew Kay's lunch-time poetry club at SLA in 2009.  By 2001, Sinnea and her buddies from Philadelphia's Youth Poetry Movement won the Brave New Voices International Youth Poetry Festival.

Rock-on Sinnea, you're beautiful.  And thank you!

(Thanks to Laurie Calvert from the US Department of Education for finding an opportunity toi share Sinnea's words on the teacher landing page at the website.)
