2019 2020 Essence Photo 2.jpg

When Benjamin Banneker High School CTAE coach Ashley Dawson and METI Tina Criss decided to collaborate on a Black History Month project this past February, they never dreamed that their efforts would garner national media attention. But the magazine which they chose to celebrate, is now celebrating them, by recognizing their creativity… As a part of the annual interactive Black History museum at BHS, Dawson had the idea to create an “Essence wall”. The main goal was to celebrate the women of Banneker as well as celebrate ESSENCE magazine’s 5Oth anniversary. Dawson collaborated with Tina Criss to create a unique way to celebrate these amazing women. Criss suggested that the women be featured on their own ESSENCE magazine covers. Each woman submitted a photo to have her cover designed by art teacher Jasmine Skeete and answered the question “What is your Essence?”. Shakirah Bryant, also an art teacher, took photos of women who preferred a recent headshot. The display showcases the beautiful women of Banneker and highlights their personal essence for students, and is hopefully inspiring for all students, especially the young ladies of BHS. ESSENCE magazine is a monthly lifestyle magazine which has been a staple in the AfricanAmerican community for 50 years, targeting women of color and providing tips and feature articles on fashion, beauty, entertainment, and culture.

Teacher of the Year

Our Teacher of the Year for 2020 is Ms. Yolanda Goggins. Ms. Goggins began her professional career as a math tutor for Columbus State University. Given her talents, she progressed to head tutor, ultimately landing a full-time job at the institution. After one year, she transitioned to Banneker High School in 1994, marking 2020 as her 26th year working for the school. With 27 total teaching years under her belt, Ms. Goggins has learned patience and the importance of innovation. Instilling creativity into each of her lessons is pertinent, crafting individual experiences for every student. “Students do not all learn the same,” says Ms. Goggins, taking pride in her ability to teach effectively no matter the student’s learning level. Inspired by teachers that came before her, she revels in their work, striving to achieve similar accomplishments. She is often celebrated for her student growth percentile rates and praised for her Saturday School initiative: Freshman Academy. She loves the students at Banneker and wants the world to know how committed the students are. “Despite their circumstances, Banneker High School scholars are devoted to excellence.” Serving as the Algebra 1 instructor, Ms. Goggins hopes to pour 30 years into Banneker High School, leaving the legacy of a teacher who truly gave her all.
