A Twist on Teacher Mentoring

lamarr_darnell_shields.jpg

A new program offers a twist on traditional teacher mentoring groups. The Teacher Exchange pairs new teachers with the ultimate critics - students. Dr. LaMarr Darnell Shields is a recipient of a 2016 Open Society Institute Baltimore community fellowship. For the next year and a half he will be working on his project at Coppin Academy, a public charter high school in Baltimore.

Here is a link to a TEDxBaltimore talk by Dr. Shields. 

Sheilah Kast is the host of On The Record, Monday-Friday, 9:30-10:00 am.
Maureen Harvie is senior producer for On the Record. She is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, and joined WYPR in 2014 as an intern for the newsroom. Whether coordinating live election night coverage, capturing the sounds of a roller derby scrimmage, interviewing veterans, or booking local authors, she is always on the lookout for the next story.
