Support for Christian Urban Educators


Teaching in an urban school is not for the faint-hearted. While teachers in urban schools can take advantage of the richness and diversity of the urban environment, the urban setting also brings unique challenges to teaching.


Teaching is a demanding task in any setting and the realities of urban life for many students adds to the diversity and complexity urban teachers face each day in their classrooms.


Whether planning to be a teacher in an urban setting or teaching in an urban Christian or public school, the Center for Christian Urban Educators (C-CUE) seeks to encourage, equip, and empower Christian educators as they impact the lives of the children entrusted to their educational care.


Harriet Potoka, founder and former principal of Daystar School. serves as the director of the Center.

Bright Promise Fund

Dave Larsen, Ph.D. who serves as the director of the Fund, is committed to building a donor base for urban Christian education from within the Chicago business, corporate, church and foundation communities.
