Meet the Teacher Event: Ed Coleman, English Department

Posted on

When:  Thursday, February 12th @ 3:30pm-4:00pm, in the Forum.

As you know, former MLWGS English teacher Mrs. Janet Meyers has served in an exemplary manner in the period following Bear O’Bryan’s death.  We are fortunate to have professionals in our community of Mrs. Meyers expertise who are willing and able to serve students in such a time of need.

Now as we begin the second semester, lets welcome Mr. Ed Coleman to our English Department.

Mr. Coleman earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Bethany College, a Master of Theological Studies from Harvard University, a Master of Arts in Teaching from Emory University and has taught English since 1995.  He possesses a depth of knowledge in both AP and IB curricula as well as considerable and exemplary teaching experience in these areas.  From 2003 to 2013 he served in a large (3,500 students) public high school in Indiana that consistently ranks in the top 2% of schools in the familiar Newsweekrankings and in 2013-2014 he served Henrico County Schools.  Among others his honors include Milken Foundation Educator, Teacher of the Year, and Rhodes Scholar Semifinalist.  Mr. Coleman and his wife have two children and live in Henrico.

Please stop by and make Mr. Coleman’s acquaintance just prior to parent-teacher conferences and welcome him to Maggie Walker.
