Most are familiar with Horace Mann’s quote: “Education, then, beyond all other devices of human origin, is the great equalizer of the conditions of men.” However, for Priscilla Conerly, its superlative is true: The equalizer is a great education. Priscilla earned a B.B.A and a J.D. from the University of Mississippi and set out to put her education to use in the courtroom. She obtained a clerkship with the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware where she had the opportunity to observe legal practice from a unique perspective. During the clerkship, she also provided writing instruction to interns. It was that moment that was the catalyst for change–Priscilla realized that her passion was the classroom, not the courtroom. She returned to school and received her teaching credentials from William Carey School of Education. This is her 8th year advocating for students; currently, she teaches English/language arts to her 8th grade scholars at Freedom Middle school.
