 “Reflections of a Retired Public School
Teacher: My Greatest Fear—My Greatest Hope”
with Larry Aaronson

Larry Aaronson w students

(No 11:00 AM Service)

“I taught social studies for 40-plus years, exclusively in public high schools from 1965-2007. I came to believe that public schools are the citadels of our Republic and the social studies classrooms are the crucibles to bring students and teachers together to practice the civics of American Democracy.”

• Larry Aaronson is a retired school teacher from the City of Cambridge. He taught US history in different capacities for 30 plus years to a variety of students. Larry is a native of Washington, DC. He came of age during the civil rights era of the 1960s and was radicalized by Civil Rights stalwarts such as Marion Barry, H Rap Brown, among others. Larry’s early years and radicalization gave him the foundation to commit himself to public education and teaching young people to think critically about US history and society.
