Ijeoma Duru, the principal of Roxbury Prep’s Lower Campus in Hyde Park, was honored by the Red Sox as a “Most Valuable Educator” on May 29 during a pregame ceremony. Duru, who grew up in Dorchester, spent six years as a math teacher and as dean of students at Uncommon Schools in New York City before returning to her hometown.  An alumna of one of Roxbury Prep’s middle schools herself, Duru said she is committed to ensuring a quality education for all and a pathway to educational freedom.

“I want to share this recognition with all educators, especially the teachers at my school, who work so hard every day to help our students succeed on their path through high school and to college,” said Duru.
