Maranyundo Visitor named as one of Boston’s Top Educators

We are pleased to share the news that Chris Flaherty was chosen as one of Boston’s Top Educators as part of Boston City Councilor-At-Large Anissa Essaibi-George’s  new teacher recognition program.This new program, which seeks to underscore the talent and commitment demonstrated  by Boston teachers, was very competitive, especially in its inaugural year. Chris was nominated by his students and colleagues at Boston Arts Academy, which makes the award even more special.

Chris Flaherty was one of the BAA teachers who traveled to Maranyundo Girls School last August along with Dara Bayer and two BAA students. Their blog of reflections on their visit to Maranyundo Girls School, entitled Voices from Rwanda can be found here:

Please join us in congratulating Chris for his commitment to making math education engaging and thank him for sharing his work with Maranyundo Girls School.
