Playworks Maryland is proud to recognize our very own Power Player Kyair Butts on his selection as Baltimore City Public Schools Teacher of the Year! Kyair Butts is a member of Playworks Maryland’s Young Professionals Board and known as the teacher with the “infectious energy” at Waverly Elementary/Middle School. He is known for his passion for language arts achievement and equity in the classroom. He also works with Urban teacher to educate his peers about racial justice in the classroom and educational workforce.
In an article from WBALTV, Butts said “Teaching is my purpose, and when you step into that, you’re really powerful. So when students see someone doing that that looks like them, who has maybe a background similar to theirs, they feel they can do this as well.”
