Eddie Grande

Edward Grande taught for eight years at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark, New Jersey. While in this role, he instructed students in the various levels of mathematics from basic skills to Advanced Placement and worked diligently to help guarantee that all students were receiving the quality education to which they were entitled. In addition, he assumed a number of extracurricular responsibilities, including serving as an advisor to the student council. For the past two years, he has remained in that district as the K-12 content area supervisor of mathematics, world languages, business, and technology. He works to improve the continuity of instruction by, for example, developing curricula and providing teachers with professional development. He has also taught and advised students at the college level during evenings and on weekends. 
 As a former master’s student at Teachers College in the Summer Principals Academy, he examined the weighted student formula, high school reform, and alternative approaches to the traditional dissertation under the guidance of Dr. Arlene C. Ackerman. He also conducted a study on ways to increase student performance in mathematics and sections of this paper are to appear in the forthcoming third edition of Coghlan and Brannick’s Doing Action Research in Your Own Organization. Prior to coming to TC, he studied at Rutgers University and earned a B.A. in mathematics and an Ed.M. in mathematics education. He is looking forward to returning to TC as a student in the Urban Education Leaders Program. Through his future interactions with faculty and fellow students, he hopes to become even more equipped for my continued role in the fight for social justice.
