Nexstar Media Group’s CBS affiliate WNCN Goldsboro, N.C., profiled two local women on February 3 who are making a difference in education as part of their Black History Month programming. In 2018, Devin Warmack and Dr. Sasha Crocker started a company called Teach It! Education Consulting Group, and their mission is to guide schools, educators and parents in creating learning environments that support equity in education by putting systems in place that ensure success of all students.
After noticing the inequities and lack of resources in their experiences at schools as instructional facilitators, an issue in education that dates back to the discriminatory practice of redlining, they now offer through Teach It! tailor-made support, one-to-one coaching, faculty team building and equity training among other services, despite a lack of school resources. With a focus on student achievement, they hope to expand across the country. “For us that’s where our heart is, the students and getting them what they need and what they deserve,” said Dr. Crocker. “We’re going to do what we can do, one school at a time, one teacher at a time, to help the students that we know definitely need this help,” Warmack said.
