    Walk & Talk With Veteran Educator Roy Vaughn

    Guest Bio: I am entering my seventeenth year as an educator, military veteran, and man of God. As a career educator I have realized the best way to impact and change the world is by ensuring that the populous is educated. Growing up it wasn’t hard to find mentors and black males to look up to. I was asked who my first black male teacher was once and I can say I was blessed having grew up in Detroit until middle school. I always had black male teachers to look up to. My fourth grade teachers name was Ralph Carruthers- a poet, master of language, and someone even to this day I admire. Then in middle school my home room teacher was a black male Mr. Phillips, one of the toughest teachers I ever had, his expectations was always excellence. I could go on. These are the men I have shaped my career after.

    About This Episode: ROTC. National Guard. Collegiate Debate Team. Take a walk with Roy Vaughn, an educator and man of God who’s passionate about education policy, and find out how these dots connected and landed him in the classroom.
