Teach 4 Social Justice Recognizes Linda McAllister of BCC

25 April 2017

Linda McAllisterBerkeley City College Professor Linda McAllister will be honored by Teachers 4 Social Justice at its 9th annual “Thank a Teacher for Social Justice” award celebration. The ceremony will be held on Friday, May 12, 2016, 6pm-10pm at the Eric Quezada Center for Culture and Politics, 518 Valencia St., San Francisco, CA. The award is a recognition of educators who have been doing social justice work in their respective communities for 3+ years and are being recognized for their impact and contribution to building a better world.

The award highlights professors who are doing powerful education-based social justice work in their classroom or community. Nominated by a student, Erika Castano, McAllister is described as “an example of as a nurturing professor and compassionate human being.”  Castano writes, “As  a non-traditional student, I thought that I’d never be able to graduate or get a degree. I asked her if I’d be able to wear “a pointy hat and a fancy robe.”

She smiled and said, “Of course! You mean cap and gown, right?” Then she said that she believed in me, and she would be at my graduation. We had this conversation last year and I’m graduating this Spring ‘17. “

Congratulations, Linda! For more information about Teach 4 Social Justice and the Thank A Teacher for Social Justice award, go to Thank-A-Teacher Awards Celebration 2017!
