What’s Good in the Neighborhood, June 6, 2022

This What’s Good marks the final full week of school as well as my final What’s Good for Families. The name, What’s Good in the Neighborhood, was coined by Jerred Anderson in a staff meeting early in 2017, during my first year at CNH. The staff was brainstorming possible names for rebranding what was then called the “Salmon Pages,” and Jerred offhandedly said, “How about What’s Good in the Neighborhood?” The team of teachers erupted in agreement, enjoying the playfulness and specificity of the name. That was one of many moments during my first year at CNH when I realized I [...]

What’s Good in the Neighborhood, May 9, 2022

This weekend, I pondered the question, “What does it mean to mother?” For many years, I “mothered” students, nieces/nephews, godchildren, and my pets.  I made great efforts to love them, nurture them, and support them in who they were and who they would become. As our country celebrated Mother’s Day yesterday, you might have reached out to folks who are mothers in the traditional sense in your life. As you consider what it means to “mother”, I wonder if there might be any other people you might want to contact and share gratitude for in your life? What might you say [...]

 This school year, Jerred Anderson has partnered with DewMore, a local organization whose mission is to use art as a tool to increase civic engagement in marginalized communities throughout Greater Baltimore. Students met with their teaching artist, Mecca, and Mr. Jerred each week at CNH after school to develop their own personal poems.  This weekend, the students and Mr Jerred spent the weekend at the Dew More poetry festival where they were able to perform their poems in front of (and be cheered by) peers from other schools, community members, and professional poets.  What an amazing opportunity for our students!  Thank [...]

The Earth Day Celebration on Saturday was wonderful!  We had students, parents/guardians, City Neighbors High School students here to help clean-up the neighborhood, plant native flowers and plants, make art about the earth, make t-shirts, and relax to some great music.  THANK YOU to the Community Relations and Facilities committees for making this event happen again this year!

40 40 school days left of this incredible school year.  40 more school days where I will serve as principal of CNH.  This leaves me with a series of questions – How will we end this school year strong for the students? How will we end our time working together? How will we connect as a larger community?  How will we prepare ourselves and our school to help the next principal transition with success to CNH? How will we care for each other? As we return to school, after 10 days with beautiful Spring weather and (hopefully) some rest and reflection, [...]

  What an amazing weekend we had at CNH.  Friday afternoon, we kicked off the weekend with a 3rd through 5th grade steel drum performance from our weeklong artist residency with Mr. Kevin. Saturday morning, we were right back at school with Breakfast With Your Sweetheart eating brunch prepared by Ms. Keara, making our own CNH Gear t-shirts, and having fun on a beautiful day. My soul feels replenished from being able to spend time with students and their families in these wonderful ways!  We have many more opportunities for gathering and reconnecting as a community coming up this Spring. Have [...]
