HTF Cohort 1
Jon joins Harvard Teacher Fellows after studying Social Studies with a focus on theories of intelligence in American society and K-12 schooling. As a Fellow, he worked at Manual High School in Denver, Colorado, teaching 11th grade Honors Civics. This course explored the main tenets of America's constitution and uncover the factors that influence elections through classroom election simulations. In addition, students competed in the We The People constitution competition. Jon is most excited to have conversations with students and their families to discover students’ academic motivations.
