Tamika Burton, a Spanish teacher at Collegium Charter School in Exton, is dressing up as African American heroes to honor the historical figures during Black History Month, writes Raymond Strickland for CBS News Philadelphia.
“For the past three years, I have been dressing up as a different person during Black History Month,” she said.
The teacher believes it is important to raise awareness about significant people who are part of Black History, especially those who are not often recognized.
She also gives out candy to any students who can figure out who she is dressed as. This has now become a fun school-wide activity for both students and staff.
“She would come in with the weirdest outfits,” joked senior Aniyah White.
