An institution in Bloomington, Minnesota, is on a mission to usher in a wave of Black educators who are ready to make a difference.
Normandale Community College launched its Sirtify program last year, and the initiative aims to “recruit and support Black, African American, and African men into Elementary and Secondary Education pathways.”
“I chose to be in the Sirtify program to help me further my career in the educational world. Being part of this program is important because it allows me to be part of a community of like-minded individuals who share my goal.” – Giovanni Saunders: https://t.co/ENvB9OmUB0 pic.twitter.com/Xa3GW9nj2M— Normandale Community College (@normandale_cc) April 20, 2022
