"Education, then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of man...." ~Horace Mann, education reformer
It is my belief that education IS the ultimate equalizer in attaining any type of success in life.
My name is Sebastain Witherspoon and I am thrilled to be the Director of Equity Services in District 742, a district that values the education of all learners. The majority of my professional experience has been in education, particularly as it pertains to equity. Joining a team of district staff and committed individuals that have high expectations for everyone allows the work of this office to aid in the challenge of achieving these beliefs and the goal of success for all students.
As the Director of Equity Services, my top priority rests in narrowing the achievement gap by gaining support and engaging the community in aiding teachers and staff in reaching this goal.
I look forward to the great opportunities that lie ahead!
Sebastian L. Witherspoon
