Our January Roadmap to Success teacher of the month is Mr. Haroon, a 7th grade Texas Studies teacher from Dallas Environmental Science Academy. Mr. Haroon ends each class by asking, “What are we spreading?” His students respond, “Joy!” He lives this creed each day by preparing his students to be college ready.
During our Roadmap to Success lesson he shares his personal stories of success and failure to bring real life into his classroom. Read on for a behind-the-scenes interview with this inspiring educator!
