Principal Macklin: Impacting a School to Impact a Community

By Jan Osborn, Dallas Doing Good

United to Learn (U2L), a Dallas-based nonprofit that partners with Dallas ISD elementary schools to accelerate student achievement and grow purposeful leaders, is helping 49 Dallas ISD elementary schools gear up for the new school year by fulfilling teachers’ supply requests through their annual Learning Launch program. The program, which is Dallas’ only back-to-school supply drive that provides schools with teacher-requested learning resources and tools, alleviates the financial and time burden of teachers and administrators who typically spend an average of $600 of their own money annually! Learning Launch equips Dallas elementary schools and classrooms for the first day of school and beyond.

Two of the schools that will receive support from United to Learn are Arlington Park Early Childhood Center and Joseph J. Rhoads Learning Center. We spoke with the principal of both schools, Principal Chaundra Macklin about her journey and education and how United to Learn helps support her vision for her school.
