Ana Cunningham

In 2012, Ana Cunningham began to teach high school English at Phillip O. Berry Academy of Technology. Since then, her love for her students and the passionate drive to ensure they receive the most enriched and enlivened education has only grown. In six years, students have become her family, inspiration, and her hope that the world can be a better place. Cunningham is a staunch advocate that students must gain the cultural capital necessary to leverage their stories to all realms of society to ensure that decisions that impact them and their families do not happen in isolation.
