“Boston’s schools provide the opportunity to work with students and staff of different backgrounds… You have to give the most of yourself and are constantly learning,” remarked Morton Pierre-Antoine as he explored open teaching positions. On Monday night, Pierre-Antoine was joined by more than 200 perspective educators gathered in Roxbury to interview with local school leaders. A first in the City, the Boston Public Schools, Boston Charter Alliance, and Catholic Schools Office came together through the Compact to host a diversity career fair for educators of color. As BPS Superintendent John McDonough explained in his welcoming remarks, “our commitment… [is] to ensure that there is an excellent teacher in every school in every classroom every single day.”
