HEBRON ESTATES - A teacher is a teacher the world over.
A local educator, hoping to see all teachers find similar success through shared platforms, ideas and resources, travelled to Africa during Spring Break to kickstart that success.
Freedom Elementary instructor Lauren Vining co-founded and established Pink Elephant, a non-profit organization dedicated to educating, mentoring and supporting teachers worldwide, especially in disadvantaged communities.
“We want to connect all teachers in a global support system,” she said.
Doug Henry has earned a doctorate from the University of Phoenix for his successful defense of his dissertation, The Effect of Public Military Academies on Africa-American High School Graduation Rates in Chicago: A Delphi Study.
Dr. Henry is an eighth grade social studies teacher at Bullitt Lick Middle School.
