Karen Lewis is our guest today on Hitting Left.
CTU Pres. Karen Lewis will be our in-studio guest this morning on Hitting Left. Be sure and tune-in at 11 a.m. (CST) to Lumpen Radio, WLPN 105.5 FM to listen live. You can download the app here.
My brother Fred and I will be talking to Karen about (what else?) teaching and politics. Our two favorite subjects.
Karen knows a thing or two about teaching and learning. She taught high school chemistry in the Chicago Public Schools for 22 years. She is a product of Chicago Public Schools, having attended Kozminski Elementary School and Kenwood High School, until accepting early admission at Mount Holyoke College. She later transferred to Dartmouth College, where she earned the distinction of being the only African American woman in the class of 1974. Mrs. Lewis comes from a family of educators — her father, mother and husband, John Lewis, who is now retired, all were CPS teachers.
As for politics, if health issues hadn't stopped her from running, she'd likely be Mayor of Chicago right now. I'm not sure if she considers that a curse or a blessing. I'll ask.
