Curtis Herring
To Curtis Herring, education is "the greatest equalizer society has. This view was formed by his upbringing and his own public education, and it has inspired his 22-year career in teaching. Mr. Herring works hard to make sure his lessons are accessible and applicable for all his students. And while students might not see how a subject like chemistry affects their lives now, he is confident that his class will positively impact his students' lives long after high school. "We don't know what our future holds for us, but having the ability to think critically, and solve problems is irreplaceable. That's what chemistry does - above and beyond learning how to write chemical formulas and balance equations," he explains. The potential to empower students with new knowledge drives Mr. Herring, and he is often challenged to find adequate resources to give students all the "real world problem-solving abilities" they need to succeed. Meeting this challenge forced Curtis to get out of his comfort zone, collaborating with other teachers to find the best resources through teacher networks and conferences, and securing more funding for his science classroom through writing grants. But that struggle is worth it, he says, when you're helping students to attain educational empowerment. Bio: Curtis Herring teaches AP Chemistry and Chemistry at Arlington High School in Arlington Community Schools and previously was a science instructor with Shelby County Schools for 21 years. Herring's career as an educator is filled with examples of excellence in classroom instruction, curriculum leadership, and a variety of leadership roles, including serving as the Department Chairperson for three years, volunteering as a science mentor for other teachers, and presenting professional development workshops for Shelby County Schools.
