Call Me MISTER
A Teacher Leadership Program
The Call Me MISTER program is a national teacher leadership program that not only prepares young men for a successful career as an elementary or secondary teacher, but also provides them with resources that will place them in a position to effectively impact the lives of children.
The Call Me MISTER program is contributing to the talent pool of excellent teachers by identifying and supporting young men who are literally "touching the future" by teaching children. This successful model seeks to reverse the lack of young men who are leaders, role models, and teachers in communities.
Who Are We? Longwood Call Me MISTER
MISTER Honored at Convocation
Alexander Morton, graduating senior in the Call Me MISTER program, participated in the September 10, 2015 Convocation ceremony. Each senior asks an underclassman to serve as his/her capper. The capper decorates the senior's mortarboard with mementos of the senior's Longwood experience and "caps" his/her senior at the appropriate time in the ceremony. Benjamin "Jamie" Gibbs served as Alexander’s capper.
Longwood’s “Suit Me Up” and Call Me MISTER Partnership
Suit Me Up is a project-based learning initiative established through a partnership with the Joseph A. Banks store in Richmond's West Broad Street location and Longwood University’s Call Me MISTER program. Through the special pricing offer of $400, donors can purchase a suit and give a suit to a Call Me MISTER participant. A MISTER-in-training participant will meet and present the Suit Me Up Initiative with a potential donor.
On November 21, MISTER participants and their donors will ride the Longwood University bus to be fitted for their new suits. Afterwards they will eat lunch at Golden Corrall. Read more
