G’bye! (For now . . . )

The school year is almost over, exams have begun, and the students in the Creative Writing magnet are heading out soon for summer break.

newsprung will be back in the fall of 2018. Classes at Booker T. Washington Magnet High School start in mid-August, and new posts will resume shortly after that. In the 2018 – 2019 school year, newsprung will have an all-Alabama focus to coincide with the state’s Bicentennial.


Alabama’s Teacher of the Year Zestlan Simmons from #btwmagnet!

We are so proud at Booker T. Washington Magnet High School that one of our English faculty, Zestlan Simmons, has been named the Alabama Teacher of the Year for 2018 – 2019. Ms. Simmons is a dedicated and much-loved teacher at our school, and she is also an alumni of the Creative Writing program at the Carver Creative and Performing Arts Center, the part-day forerunner of our school.
