Stacey James McAdoo - Bio as Submitted

2019 Arkansas Teacher of the Year Stacey McAdoo of the historic Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, had a vision over twenty years ago that she would one day stand and speak to a crowd of millions. She interpreted that vision to mean she would change the world as a writer, educator, and an advocate for students. Today her vision is reality as she represents the voice of 34,000 educators and 500,000 students across Arkansas.

McAdoo mixes passion and poetry to amplify the voices of her students, honor the history of her school, and unite her community. She has participated in several literacy/spoken word organizations such as the SanKofa Poets, Word Up! Poetry Troupe, and Foreign Tongues. McAdoo is an Educator to Educator Facilitator with AEA and the AVID (a college and career readiness program) Coordinator. Teaching Tolerance recently featured her as a student advocate. Author of “Sweet Melanin Messages” and “Baring My Soul,” McAdoo is the sponsor of the Writeous Poets, co-produced the radio show entitled “The Writeous Hour” and has published two books of her students’ works entitled: “Stage A: Where Students Think, Speak and Dream” and “A Writeous Look at the Crisis.”
