How a Respected Institute Upset the First Black History Teacher of the Year in Massachusetts
Kevin Dua is the 2017 History Teacher of the Year for Massachusetts, the first black educator to win the award in the state. But right now, he isn’t thrilled with the people who gave him the honor.
Since 2016 Dua has taught at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School, a public high school, after spending five years at Somerville High School near Boston. He has received numerous awards, including the 2017 Omicron Delta Kappa Alumni Honoree from William & Mary, the 2017 Massachusetts Council for the Social Studies Don Salvucci Award for Excellence in Promoting Civic Education, and the 2017 Kathleen Roberts Creative Leadership Award at the MTA Human and Civil Rights Awards.
