Positive relationships with the diverse education community.

  • In an effort to deal with our communities issues: highest teen pregnancy rate in the nation, increased gang and teen violence, and Newsweek Magazine's ranking of Milwaukee as the second most segregated city in America I sought to meet our communities diversity by being involved with these three programs: 
    • Because of concerns in the community about inappropriate  role models and a lack of positive male role models in the inner city, I presented an original workshop for the boys only called "Real Men" which talked about character and integrity and how to act around a woman. A female staff member spoke to the girls.

    • Because of a racism issue which occurred specifically in two classrooms during third quarter, I conducted a two period workshop on racism and respecting each other regardless of gender, color or creed.  I called the workshop "Running with the Races." The workshop ended with a dialogue between the students.  The results were very positive. Our school is owned by the Turkish community and I attended several events sponsored by the Turkish communities’ unity group “Harmony Foundation” which encourages tolerance of race and religion through dialogue and understanding.
