DC Advocates: Strengthening the Pillars of ACE

Mary Forr (ACE 18) knows first-hand the difference that having a strong community can make in moving to a new city. After the challenges of being a first-year teacher in ACE, Forr describes that “by the end of your second year of ACE, you realize what a treasure your time in ACE was. You are by far the coolest teacher in your school. Your housemates have become a second family. And the city where you lived has become home. And then, it’s over! And once again you leave the comfort of the familiar. You’re thrown out of your familiar school, your community, and your city and once again you’re left trying to figure out your life. Trying to figure out how to keep the three pillars of ACE standing strong in what may be, once again, a new job, a new city, and a new group of people.” Fortunately, Forr and many others in the greater Washington, D.C. area have found strength in the D.C. ACE Advocates community.

Excellence in Teaching Conference 2018

It was Friday, October 26. Deborah Brown stared out the window of her Uber as it rolled down tree-lined Notre Dame Avenue, pulling into the Morris Inn. It was her first time visiting Notre Dame, and the foliage flanking the Dome exceeded every expectation an Alabama native could bring to the Midwest at the peak of autumn. Karina Chamorro, a 2018 Notre Dame graduate and resident of Seattle, pulled onto campus and without so much as a second thought, trekked toward the familiar light of the Grotto. Jesse White, in from Pennsylvania via an overnight Amtrak ride, toured campus with his daughter, a senior in high school and prospective Notre Dame student.
