Every summer, Aim High recognizes and honors outstanding emerging teachers through the Anne Murray Ladd Teaching Fellowship Award. Assistant and Lead Teachers (college and post-college teachers) who have taught at Aim High for multiple summers, have shown exemplary leadership in the classroom, and are pursuing careers in teaching are eligible for the award. This year, each of the nine recipients exemplifies Aim High teaching at its very best, and embodies the values and mission of the award’s namesake, Anne Murray Ladd, a remarkable Aim High educator whose many legacies include the creation of our signature course, Issues & Choices. Though at different stages in their teaching journeys, the awardees share an extraordinary drive to think critically about the craft of teaching and their role as educators, to make lasting impact on their students and to reimagine the classroom as a space for social change, with a deep commitment to inclusion and social justice. 2021 ANNE MURRAY LADD TEACHING FELLOWSHIP AWARDEES: Alondra Vazquez-Murillo Redwood City Campus Amanda McGreal Napa Campus Angeles Avila Fruitvale Campus Anthony Mora Gracilazo Tahoe/Truckee Campus Crystal Thomas Baytola Campus Fatima Hernandez San Rafael Campus Josephine Lee Excelsior Campus Marley Duerst Chinatown Campus Parinita Kumari Ingleside Campus We congratulate the awardees for their outstanding leadership this year.
