Youth Development Department Head Elizabeth Johnson Named Recipient of 2017 REVERE Award

Elizabeth Johnson, Youth Development Department Head at Windsor Terrace Middle, was recently awarded the prestigious 2017 REVERE Award in recognition of her work on "Real As Me: A Curriculum Guide for Empowering Young Women". The award, hosted by the Association of American Publishers, is given annually in recognition of the nation's highest-quality educational products that support teaching and learning. 

The "Real As Me" curriculum features interactive conversations framed around on true stories by teens and is already underway with great success in a pilot program at Windsor Terrace Middle School. We look forward to adapting it further in our halls and classrooms, and are deeply proud of Elizabeth Johnson and her co-authors for this fantastic curriculum and its positive influence on literacy and socio-emotional learning.
