Audrey Jackson, 5th Grade Inclusion Teacher
Joseph P. Manning Elementary School,
Boston Public Schools
2016 Massachusetts Teacher of the Year

Inclusive school communities honor the belief that education is for everyone. My fifth graders are brave, engaged, reflective members of our class who aspire to make a difference in their world. An inclusion model is the most dynamic and thorough way I know for a teacher to be an agent of positive social change.
