Linda Churchwell-Varga Summer Institute
for Teachers of Color

presented by New City School

Since our founding in 1969, New City School has believed that having a diverse faculty and administration is essential to the success of our school. New City students benefit from seeing themselves reflected in their teachers and this institute is part of New City’s commitment to preparing teachers of color for success in any independent school.

The week was filled with presentations, school visits, and open discussions that empowered me to really self-evaluate who I am as an educator. The institute gave me the opportunity to reflect on what kind of impact I want to make on students, families, and the community.
