THE EXTRA CREDIT SHOW
The Extra Credit Show is a podcast and online TV show highlighting excellence in our education system. It is not a show espousing a particular ideology or opinion. Instead, The Extra Credit Show explores educational excellence and innovations with the innovators themselves. Our guests are sharing the foundations and driving forces behind their innovations and together we’re exploring the implementation, issues and evolution of those ideas. The Extra Credit Show is the new classroom in America where only the best of the best educators and innovators are teaching the rest of us how to connect powerfully with the rising generation. They are the ones on whose shoulders our children will stand.
ChamBria J. Henderson is passionate about making a difference in other peoples’ lives. From her earliest days of being “the big sister” in a large multi-racial, USAF family that was always filled with foster kids, to her first neighborhood fundraiser at the age of 9, she has always looked out for the lost and lonely and under-privileged in society. She loves few things more than listening to others until they get done talking, and encouraging them to find their best self and chase their dreams.
Being a military brat, she experienced first-hand the disparity in education in classrooms across the United States. Often attending several schools in a year, she found herself either at the top or bottom of the new class on a regular basis. Frustrated with one of her 5th grade teachers, she demanded and was appalled to learn from the principal that school choice was not a legal option. She informed him that someday it would be. The upside to that situation was that she learned the power of, and has enjoyed self-educating since then, always competing against herself to master the unknown. Graduating in the top 3% of her high school class and still feeling unprepared for the adult world, she realized systemic change in K-12 education needed to happen and she wanted to be a part of the transition.

Reading ChamBria’s chapter in Success Mastery was a moment I will not soon forget. Having worked with her since 2002, I have had the incredible privilege of a front and center seat as she has touched thousands of lives with her work. ChamBria is one of those incredible people who looks at the problems happening in the world and stands up to do something about it. She gets that education is at the root of so many of our social and economic problems and that by improving education, we can improve the lives of so many people. I’m delighted and excited to see this new direction, and to see her voice rise up on a national level to talk about what’s happening in education, and the ways that we can all come together to continue to improve this system for our nation’s children.
