    • Business

André Amoor is one of the most traveled of any of the guests we’ve had on the show. In this episode, he tells us about his incredible teaching adventures overseas, including in war zones in the Middle East. His extensive experience running international schools and navigating cultural/political challenges has given him a strong foundation in helping shape extended learning opportunities for the Denver Public School District. 
In our discussion, Andre talks about: 
How he’s working to integrate the continuous and cohesive education philosophies he witnessed overseas into the DPS extended learning curriculum. How after school programming shouldn’t be considered separate from the regular school day, but rather an extension of it. The difference between after school programming and child care. How he works with his team to provide opportunities that satisfy the needs of a diverse community.The ways he and his team work to secure funding to ensure his programming is accessible to all students/families. The challenge of staffing all of his sites and the apprenticeship program he’s developed to create a pipeline of candidates. Navigating the challenges of COVID-19.And so much more! About Andre:
André Amoor is Senior Manager of Extended Learning & Community Schools for Denver Public Schools. He’s an incredible advocate for creating engaging learning experiences for thousands of ECE through high school students. In his role, he is instrumental in aligning the district’s objectives to his programming and ensuring measurable results.

He also oversees the recruiting/retention initiatives for 400 employees district-wide.
