Maya Bennett
Common Core Teacher Leader

Maya Bennett is the Reading Interventionist at Capitol Elementary School in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. She also serves her campus as a Teacher Leader on Common Core and the state of Louisiana as a Teacher Leader Advisor.

She earned her undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University and will receive her maser’s in curriculum and instruction from Concordia University in May. To boot, Maya is a proud Teach For America alumna and graduate of Advance Innovative Education’s principal certification program.

As a Teacher Leader, Maya works directly with representatives from the state department of education to chart a course toward excellence as it relates to the implementation of Common Core as well as the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers. In this work she has the opportunity to develop her colleagues and support their effort to transform their instructional practice in order to meet the new academic standards. Her role also allows her to work directly with students in their literacy acquisition.

Maya believes in the powerful words of Nelson Mandela and strives to bring them to life, ‘Education is the most powerful weapon, which you can use to change the world.’

What is the best approach to shedding pounds in a state where cuisine is part of its culture?

January heralds the beginning of a New Year and for many, a resolution to practice a healthier lifestyle. According to the 13th annual State of Obesity report, Louisiana now has the highest rate of adult obesity in the country. So, what is the best approach to shedding pounds in a state where cuisine is part of its culture? Which diet is the most effective for losing weight? What weight loss surgeries are available and how safe are they? And what role does exercise play in the health equation? Louisiana Public Square searches for answers on “Healthy New Year!” Wednesday, January 25 at 7pm on LPB HD and in New Orleans on WLAE. (Recording Tuesday, January 24)
