Truman Alums Talk TeachingMarch 20, 2016
Two alumni are returning to campus this week to do a presentation called “Truman Alums Talk Teaching.” Allison Cundiff and Heather Shana Fleming will be here from Parkway North to talk about their careers in a way that we hope will engage our students and re-engage us in these two women’s professional lives. As Truman undergrads, they didn’t know each other. They pursued different paths to certification. Eventually they ended up working at the same school when the phenomenon we refer to as Ferguson happened and some of their students were directly affected by the series of events that followed. I suspect “Social Justice Teaching” meant something different to them before and after Ferguson. The presentation happens at noon, Thursday March 24 in Georgian Room A in the SUB. In the Truman tradition we will be serving heavy hors oeuvres and drinks.
