In this Name Bites, Jennifer and Mallory pick names of educators Carlton Moody and Marva Collins. Carlton Moody was our vice principal at Martin Luther King Jr. Laboratory School in Evanston Illinois. He was a beloved role model for many students during his tenure at the experimental school, and still interacts with them today! Marva Collins opened her own private school for the lower-income families in the inner city of Chicago.

Jennifer and Mallory deep-dive into each name, its meaning, and popularity over time.
