In the words of renowned author James Baldwin, March’s Teacher of the Month, Susan Steinmiller, rejects making peace with mediocrity.

The devoted teacher drives 100 miles daily from Rockford to Gage Park High School on Chicago’s south side, and is available to her students until 6 in the evening on some days.

One test of Ms. Steinmiller’s commitment to turning out students who will be successful in life is her leadership role in AVID. AVID is a nationwide program for students who are capable of completing a rigorous curriculum but without intervention fall short of their potential.
