EVENT: 2015 Boston Marathon
EVENT DATE: Apr 20, 2015
I am proud to work and run for Discovering Justice.
I work for Discovering Justice because I am passionate about education and civic education in particular. As a lawyer and an educator, I combine aspects of both professions to help change and improve the lives of middle school age students with engaging curriculum and challenging experiential learning programs in which our courtrooms become classrooms and we invite students in to show them how to use their voices for justice.
I run for Discovering Justice because with every step I am reminded of the work I do and why I do it. I’m not a runner: preparing for, running in and completing this marathon will be among the most difficult things I have done. When I think I can’t do it, I push myself harder because I want to demonstrate my commitment to Discovering Justice and the students we serve.
