Freeman said his teachers pushed him to be the best he could be, in a way that affirmed what he was learning at home. “They showed me the power of hard work and helped me to understand that nothing is accomplished alone.”
Freeman graduated from Cornell University in 2105 with a bachelor’s degree in applied economics and management. He accepted a position with Teach for America, which provides teachers for low-income schools. Each corps member, as the teachers are called, makes a two-year commitment. Freeman is teaching at William Pinderhughes Elementary/Middle School in West Baltimore.
