Schooling with Susana: Visits to Lake and Barnum!

May. 11, 2018

In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week, Deputy Superintendent Susana Cordova took to our classrooms to visit with teachers and lend a hand with their lessons. On Wednesday, Susana stopped by Beth Douma‘s history class at Lake International School, where she led the eighth-graders in a lesson on slavery and abolitionists, including listening to quotes set to rap by Abraham Lincoln and Fredrick Douglass.

She also visited her elementary alma mater, Barnum Elementary, to co-teach a lesson alongside Arielle Walker and led the fourth-graders in looking up costs to build a playground.

“I was a teacher, and I know how hard teaching can be,” Susana shared during her lesson at Lake. “I wanted to take some time to say thank you to Ms. Douma and all our teachers for what they do.”
