Growing up in Boston, I attended Boston Latin School, which was literally created before “US History” was even a thing. (It opened its doors in 1635!) I got a lot out of my high school education, but so much of it was focused on testing and tradition that it was a breath of fresh air to hear about GCE’s purpose-driven curriculum, Field Experiences and Student Projects. I think my background has really helped me appreciate what GCE offers, both to students and teachers. Everyone here wants to learn, try new things, and push themselves out of their comfort zones. I’m truly thankful to be a part of such a unique organization.
