She moved to the non-profit sector and led several networks of schools through partnerships with Northeastern University’s Teachers’ Center, Northwestern University, the City Colleges of Chicago and the University of Chicago’s Center for School Improvement. She was the first district-wide literacy coordinator and equity leader for Evanston Township High School District 202 and has also taught high school, community college and university graduate students.
Dr. Armour’s primary praxis is equity evolution and expansion, innovative coaching practices and equity education using a multi-faceted, systems approach. By crafting relevant, engaging learning experiences for all students—both young and adult, Dr. Armour’s work with schools, school districts and not-for-profits has resulted in changing their narratives from marginalizing to inclusive…from segregated to integrated…..from surviving to thriving.
