I moved to New Orleans 3 years ago to work in education (on data stuff), but felt very separated from the actual work happening with students across the city. When I found Big Class, I found a group of committed and passionate individuals who work directly with students to get them to write, write, write on a daily basis.
Creative writing? Awesome! Not data? Double awesome!
I truly believe that one of the most important things we must cultivate in our young people is their interest in writing and self-expression. I'm very excited about Big Class' work and what it brings to life in our community.
