Marie L Greenwood smiles as she recalls her story.

She has lived through significant moments in our country’s history, and has made history herself. At 106, Marie L. Greenwood – the first African-American teacher in Denver to receive tenure – still believes in the simple, powerful vision she had from her earliest days as an educator: that every child can learn.
