Raheem Howard was nominated by his colleague, Robert Howard.

"I had the pleasure of working with Mr. Howard through Ed Inquiry for two summers," Robert explained. "I can only say that he is one of the most compassionate educators I've been around in my 26 years of teaching. The students we co-taught didn't want to leave the program at the end of the summer. Raheem challenged each child every single day. They had fun and competed on a scholarly level. I'm honored to be able to recognize him as a nominee. He is a great educator and an even better human being!"

Going in to 10th grade now, I can confidently say I have never had a teacher as dedicated, motivating, and enthusiastic as Mr. Howard. I had the pleasure of being his student during the Biggest Winner Math Challenge almost two years ago. That summer was one of the best I had because he (and his co teacher Mr. H) taught in a way I had never experienced in school. I felt heard, challenged, and comfortable in his class, which all took place virtually! The next two summer after that I returned to the program and got the chance to work alongside Mr. Howard as a teen leader and learned from him the heart that goes into teaching. He knows how to push his students to be better, but also how to make genuine connections with them, like he did with me. I am proud to say Mr. Howard is an inspiration to me and is someone I will never forget. He absolutely deserves this nomination.
