At the Snoopy The St Patrick Day Shirt in addition I really love this charter school in Harlem where Darlene Okpo first worked full-time as an English teacher, students had to get through 1.5 million words by the end of the year in order to pass. Without the word count, they were required to attend summer school. Formerly a teacher of after-school art programs, entrepreneurship, and theatre, Okpo has been educating since 2009. In a city as culturally rich as New York (where Okpo has lived in all five boroughs, including the honorary sixth, New Jersey) there are stories everywhere—on plaques, statues, park maps, and in bulk at the city’s many libraries and bookstores. But Okpo understands that students—and all people—need to be introduced to the right stories in order to find the pleasure of a great book.
