Baltimore’s Strongest to Share Strengths

Great Minds® is delighted to have two of Baltimore’s finest teachers sharing their knowledge and expertise with fellow educators this summer and during the 2019–2020 school year as Wit & Wisdom® Fellows.  Kyair Butts and Katie Scotti

Middle school English language arts teacher Kyair Butts of Waverly Elementary/Middle School is the Baltimore City Public Schools 2019 Teacher of the Year. Katie Scotti, a Grade 4 English language arts teacher at Thomas Johnson Elementary/Middle School 84, was a top ten finalist.

Butts and Scotti both use Wit & Wisdom from Great Minds in their classrooms. Baltimore City Public Schools chose Wit & Wisdom and Eureka Math®, also from Great Minds, to provide rich, knowledge-building curricula to all students.

As Wit & Wisdom Fellows, Butts and Scotti will facilitate Wit & Wisdom professional development for their fellow teachers of the curriculum, offering insights and tips to help colleagues bring joyful literacy learning to their own students.
