Naeemah Kennedy, Humanities Teacher, Middle School
I am a Roxbury native born and raised in the heart of the city. While growing up in Roxbury I went to school in Newton as a part of the METCO program. Upon graduating high school I sought out something different and traveled to Atlanta, GA to attend an HBCU (Historically Black College and University), an experience I shall never forget. I graduated from Boston's very own Northeastern University. Over the last 15 years I have had the pleasure of working with students from across the city in grades 1-12 in the Boston Public School system. While I’m not at work I’m at home being a mom to two young men. I currently have the pleasure of being the 7th and 8th grade Humanities teacher here at BGA Thank you for sharing your amazing young people with me.
