Joshua Morgan joined Dr. Jill Biden, Gen. Colin Powell, Kennedy Center chairman David Rubenstein, BET CEO Debra Lee and others Monday night to say thanks.
As part the Standing Ovation for D.C. Teachers, Morgan presented an Excellence in Teaching award to 1st grade teacher Asonja Dorsey from his alma mater, Maury Elementary School.
According to Standing Ovation’s website, more than 90 percent of Dorsey’s students meet or exceed reading benchmarks every year.
Currently in her 21st year at Maury Elementary, Asonja Dorsey loves her school’s genuine, family-like atmosphere, calling it her “own little piece of heaven on earth.” Her enthusiasm has led her to serve on numerous committees at Maury, and to mentor student teachers and new teachers as they join the school’s faculty. This same communal spirit informs Mrs. Dorsey’s efforts in her classroom.
