Mr. Michael Harris
My name is Michael Harris, and I am eagerly looking forward to serving as president of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Alliance of Black School Educators (MMABSE). I am humbled that the members and executive board have entrusted me and our vice-president, Dr. Patricia Ellis to lead the organization into the future.
I am a father, brother, uncle, educator and member of MMABSE, and I am excited to carry on the work of our founders to ensure that MMABSE continues to grow, develop and provide resources to inspire the next generation of educators, parents, and students.
I am a proud product of Milwaukee Public Schools and understand the challenges and opportunities that many face in our communities and in our schools. I also know that when we work together, we can overcome any obstacles that are in our way to ensure all students and staff are supported and achieve at high levels.
I look forward to working with many community and business organizations to continue the work that those before us have engaged in and have moved forward.
Our work and tasks will continue to be relevant; focused on programming that addresses the current needs of students and educators. By providing relevant resources and support to both students and professional staff, we can ensure that our work is making a difference–it has an impact on teaching and learning, policies and systems to enhance the student and educator experience. Along with making sure the work is relevant and impactful, we need to ensure that our work is sustainable and is guided by research-based strategies to ensure we are producing and modeling excellence.
I am excited to get started with the team. If you are interested in becoming a member or want to learn more about our organization, I invite you to visit our website at www.mmabse.org or contact our membership chair, Stephanie Zollicoffer-Phillips at [email protected] We all have a role to play in this work and your contribution will be appreciated.
For the children,
