Thurgood Marshall Academy teacher earns national accolades

Congratulations to Kena Allison

[Caption and photo from Milken Educator Award Website, credit Milken Family Foundation]: The Milken Educator Award is not a lifetime achievment award, it's a recognition of the potential impact that an early- to mid-career educator can have on thousands more lives. Kena Allison wastes no time in realizing that potential, back in her physics classroom minutes after receiving the life-changing award.

The JQI would like to congratulate Kena Allison, science teacher at Thurgood Marshall Academy, who recently received a Milken Educator Award for her "commitment to teaching science." Called the "Oscars of teaching," the award comes with $25,000. PFC graduate student researcher Jeff Grover has been visiting Allison's classroom over the last few years, integrating physics demonstrations into her curriculum. Thurgood Marshall Academy is a D.C. Public Charter School located in the Anacostia region. For more information see the Academy's newsroom.
