Today, members of the 2016 cohort of OSI-Baltimore Community Fellows gathered to hear from two current fellows, Deborah Ramsey and LaMarr Shields.
Ramsey, whose program, Unified Efforts, focuses on out-of-school time violence and bullying prevention, brought two of her students, LaMontez and Tayshawn,” to the gathering. LaMontez said Unified Efforts was his second home, and “Ms. Debbie is like my second mother.”
Shields is currently working in partnership with Coppin Academy, where this month’s gathering was held, to establish the Teacher Exchange, a student-to-teacher coaching program.
