Frank Wilburn is an elementary resident in BTR Cohort 13. He is originally from Long Island, New York, and graduated from Cornell University in 2010 with a major in human development. For the past five years, he has served in varying capacities with City Year New York. There, he had the opportunity to explore and see firsthand the challenges that students and schools face in under-resourced areas. But he also had the privilege of witnessing the potential and resilience that exists in all students, and the extent to which collaboration and community building can make a difference. He is looking forward to challenging himself, and being fully invested in the academic experience of the students he will serve.
Inspiration to teach:
It was not made explicit to me when I was younger, but my parents made sacrifices to ensure I had a quality in a private school because they didn’t believe in the same public school system that they themselves had graduated from. I want to be a part of a movement that works to ensure all students have access to an academic experience that is rigorous and meaningful.
I’m a New Yorker through and through, but it’s been less than a year and I now proudly call Boston my home away from home.
Favorite Thing in the World To Do:
I enjoy trying out foods/dishes that are new to me.
I have never contributed to a blog before. I’m excited to share my thoughts with whomever will read them.
