Q: Tell us about yourself. What do you do? Briefly, what has been your educational and/or career path? 

A: I am currently in my 18th year as a DC Public Schools educator.  Early in my career, I taught grades 3-5, reading, math, science, and social studies.  As the District's strategy for elementary education shifted, I focused on teaching math and science.  I am currently a math interventionist and professional development leader at Lawrence E. Boone Elementary School.  I also serve as Boone's Athletic Director, where we are fielding cross country and outdoor track teams for the first time this year.

 

Q: What are your favorite memories of Banneker? 

A: My favorite memories of Banneker include participating in the Southern College Tour, playing intramural badminton during our lunch breaks, and forging life-long relationships with classmates and faculty.

 

Q: What songs were popular during your senior year? 

A: In 1999, some of the popular songs were "Hard Knock Life" by Jay-Z, "Everything is Everything" by Lauryn Hill, and "I Heard It's the Bomb" by Backyard Band.

 

Q: What advice do you have for current students? 

A: Build relationships with your teachers, counselors, and administration.  They have a wealth of knowledge, so do not hesitate to ask them for advice.

Kendall Evans, Banneker '99
