A Little NU in NYC

Allison Turck, ’15, is a fourth grade teacher at Success Academy Charter Schools in New York City. Each year, the academy’s classrooms are named after the alma mater of the lead teacher, so Allison’s room will be known as Niagara University. Here, her students (who, by the way, are ranked second in English language arts and first for mathematics in New York state based on the state tests) show off their Niagara swag. Throughout the school year, Allison incorporates NU into the classroom and in her students’ educational activities.
