Detroit Edison Public School Academy
“I really wish my parents and my students all knew that everything I do is from the heart.”
April Angle is a fifth grade teacher at Detroit Edison Public School Academy of the New Paradigm for Education district in Detroit. When COVID-19 closed her school building, she and her colleagues had to make a swift transition to online learning. At a time when some students and parents are burnt out or overwhelmed by the rigors of online learning, April’s students maintain high attendance and engagement for her digital class sessions. And this doesn’t happen by accident. April works around-the-clock – long after the her last class is taught – to stay in touch with her students’ parents.
We thank April for her dedication to her students and families!
