Game Changers

In the early years of my teaching career, I had the awesome privilege of teaching math to some very talented young people at Oakland School for the Arts.  The school offered a longer school day to accommodate a rigorous academic and art curriculum, be it dance, theatre, production, instrumental music and graphic arts.  After completing my teaching load, I would often find my way to the dance studio to watch Mr. Ray-Savage, who became like a big brother to me, in action.  At times, we’d collaborate in illuminating the intersection of math and dance.  More often, I would marvel at his genius as well and the movement of the lucky pupils under his tutelage.

I was so pleased to see The Game Changers Project recognize his dedication in instilling valuable lessons that go far beyond the dance studio in his pupils.

Who in your community is doing great work in changing the lives of young people?
