Black History Month: Heros: My Hero Essays

About this Daily Classroom Specials: During February, TeachersNetwork.org focuses on African-American Heritage. This DCS is maintained by Lottie Simms, teacher at Miami Lakes Middle School (Miami, FL) and Teachers Network web mentor.

Ever wonder why some people are heroes? Heroes, according to my students, have something special that sets them apart from others in their field. Heroes are peacekeepers, freedom fighters, earthwatchers, special writers of lyrics. Heroes have special talents and usually have overcome their own life's obstacles. Learn more about these African-Americans admired by children by selecting a name at right. If you want to add a story of your own, e-mail your story to Lottie Simms, Miami Lakes Middle School.
