We are so thankful for all the support and good will coming our way at City Neighbors! When we started with the idea of City Neighbors 14 years ago, we didn’t know that someday we would be serving over 850 students, and working with 100 teachers, and partnering with traditional schools, the District, Universities, Community groups and more…and we feel so grateful. Lets keep going together. Lets do more. If City Neighbors has made a difference for you, then please consider a donation to our #GivingTuesday campaign and support our work. We are raising funds for our newly launched summer camp – focused on literacy, friendships, and the arts.
The Progressive Ed Summit is a free conference in Baltimore. There you will find a groundswell of people taking a stand for children. A stand that sees children (All children!) as capable, creative, loving, powerful, and worthy of the deepest respect. At the Summit you will find a grassroots gathering of teachers sharing and learning together – with over 40 workshops to chose from. You will also find artists and poets, shop owners and philanthropists, politicians, and students – coming together for a day of community.
New this year you will have a choice of 3 Master Classes at the Summit. Master Classes will be led by three strong leaders in the field of education. Dr. Susan Engel – our Keynote Speaker – will lead How to Help Children Develop Their Ideas. Obi Okobi, Principal of City Neighbors Hamilton, will lead Social Justice and Racial Equity in Education. Dr. Shyla Rao, Graduate Director at the Maryland Institute College of Art, will lead Arts Education as a form of Social Act. Please join us for this opportunity and connect, learn, and share.
Dr. Sonja Santelises, CEO of Baltimore City Schools
