As a product of the Topeka Public Schools system, a Monroe School attendee, and a 1970 graduate of Topeka High School, I was able to personally navigate the unique blueprint of an educational system that yet contained vestiges of racism, sexism, and low expectations for academic success among students of color.  My professional career was then dedicated to returning to this same system and doing all within my power as an educator and school administrator to equalize the playing field for all students, empowering students with disabilities, students of all ethnic backgrounds, and students who may have been allowed to fall through the cracks to become successful learners, high school graduates, and individuals who are invested in our community and want to give back to help others.Beryl A.

However, the entire family ended up settling in Topeka, where she has lived ever since.As a young child, she loved organizing activities that involved teaching others.

When she had six children, Beryl enrolled in Washburn University where she graduated with high honors, earning her bachelor’s degree in 1988. She then began her career doing what she had always felt a calling to do – teaching English at her alma mater, Topeka High School! She went on to later earn her master’s in educational administration from Washburn in 2001. Following that, she earned a doctor of education degree from the University of Kansas in 2007. During her administratThis talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
