Millikan PEACE Academy Teacher Leslie Gombrich Recognized as Outstanding Educator by NAACP

By Lee Underwood

PEACE Academy Philosophy Teacher

On Sunday May 17th, at the NAACP 2015 Teacher Recognition & Appreciation Program, PEACE Academy teacher Leslie Gombrich was honored for being an inspiration to her students.  She was among 15 outstanding educators from LBUSD who were commended for going above and beyond for their students to ensure that every child receives a quality education. 

“Today we will honor and recognize outstanding educators who make a difference,” Naomi Rainey, NAACP Long Beach Branch President said in a letter issued about the event. “The teachers we honor today go above and beyond for our children and youth to ensure that every child receives a quality education.”

As a founding member of the PEACE Academy, Ms. Gombrich believes that, “cultivating academic success should not come at the expense of developing an ethical individual who wants to take his / her skills and go out into the world and make it a better place.”  As a U.S. History teacher, she continues to use history of women and groups of all colors, nationalities, and socioeconomic backgrounds to educate and empower her students to better themselves and the communities they live in. 

The Long Beach Branch of the NAACP hosts this program each year to recognize and show appreciation to teachers. They believe it is extremely important to support teachers and to promote the value of education. The NAACP also believes it is important for all stakeholders of the community to applaud teachers for work they do educating our youth so they can participate in and attain their vision of the American Dream.

Drawing inspiration from Eleanor Roosevelt’s edict that “Justice cannot be for one side alone, but must be for both,” Leslie empowers her students to take advantage of learning experiences she did not get in school. “Learning about the history of women and groups of all colors, nationalities, and socioeconomic backgrounds empowered me,” she says. “ I wanted to take these stories and experiences and bring them to the students so they too would feel empowered to better themselves and the communities they live in.”

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) was formed in 1909 by a group of black and white citizens. They united to respond to injustice that many Americans confronted solely because of race. The NAACP remains the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the world, and continues to focus on the major efforts to increase voter empowerment, educational excellence, and individual responsibility creating economic and social pathways for developing motivated young leaders.
