  • Smith Academy Reflection

    This past Thursday I visited the Smith Academy for Excellence and was surprised at how the school worked to help the boys learn best. We learned that most of the boys come from a poverty stricken neighborhood with many family problems. Along with this, a majority of the students were African American but there were also a few Caucasians and Latinos. The age/grade range of the boys is from second grade up until twelfth. They are extremely proud that this is the first year they will have a graduating class, including a young man who had previously graduated in the winter. I found it interesting that, although the men who run the school are Christians and the school is located inside a church, some of the students and teachers are not believers. This is a great way for the Smiths to share God’s word with them if asked.

Most future teachers who are also Christians tend to shy away from talking about their faith out of fear of laws in place; however, by hearing someone who is in charge of their own school finding ways of incorporating this helps me to realize it is possible and should be done because I may be the only one the student or faculty member will hear about…

With the foundation of…

  • Steuart Vs. Smith

They agree that when individuals peruse their selfish interests and in turn, become dependent in one another, and consequently create the modern economy. However, they differ in the nature of how these two principles interplay in…

    author Zadie Smith offers “a new rhythm of life” in her fiction (Fanon 1442). Born in London, England to a Jamaican mother and British father, Smith’s stories of multicultural families and the-search-for-self narrative examine the postcolonial world with humor.
