In the realm of education, there’s a transformative power that goes beyond textbooks and traditional teaching. At 3030 Publishing, in collaboration with Hope Service non-profit organization, we spotlight the true heart and soul of education by recognizing educators who champion SEL, equity, and empathy in their teaching methodologies.

This month, we present two such champions: Mrs. Domonique Vernon and Mr. Eldridge Grant.

Mrs. Vernon, a third-grade teacher at the Rialto Unified School District, intertwines academic rigor with emotional well-being. “I chose teaching because of the educators who believed in me,” she reveals. Her mornings commence with affirmations, a tradition she attributes to teachers from her past who merged curricular teachings with life lessons. Having begun her journey in the tumultuous post-2020 COVID era, Mrs. Vernon stresses the importance of a safe space, blending lessons with character-building, “giving students tools for success and opportunities to implement them.”

Over at Murrieta Unified School District, Mr. Eldridge Grant not only instructs in science at Murrieta Mesa High School but also pilots the mentoring program, Mesa Men. A diverse group representing multiple races, the Mesa Men face real challenges that pose threats to academic success. Mr. Grant serves as their bridge, aiding them to overcome obstacles. He says, “As school starts, we discuss not just the goals of this month but the end-of-year objectives. We address long-term aspirations, including trade schools and colleges. We start with their distant dreams and build a blueprint backward, helping them visualize the steps to turn dreams into realities.” The profound trust and connection he fosters offer these young men a safe space to be transparent and vulnerable, ensuring their emotional well-being aligns with their academic pursuits.

The synergy of Mrs. Vernon’s innovative methods and Mr. Grant’s holistic mentoring encapsulates what John Broussard, founder of 3030 Publishing, envisions for education. “Our partnership with Hope Service emphasizes recognizing educators who seamlessly connect the heart with the mind,” he affirms, applauding those who interlace academic excellence with SEL intellect.
