EVENT: 2012 Boston Marathon

EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2012

THE STORY:

One of the things I said I always wanted to do when I turned 40 was to run the Boston Marathon. I am now 42 and I have decided.....this is the year! I had recently started running again with a close friend and colleague when another close friend of mine, Pamela Civins, let me know that I could run the Boston Marathon to raise money for Boston Partners in Education (www.bostonpartners.org) where Pamela serves as Director. I was a volunteer for Boston Partners over a decade ago when I was placed in a bilingual school in East Boston. It was this experience that motivated me to look for a full time teaching position as a bilingual teacher so I think it is a great fit.


Boston Partners in Education has tutored and mentored K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools for over 45 years. They have trained volunteers, who serve as academic mentors, help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.
I am very excited to run the 2012 Boston Marathon to raise money for Boston Partners!

 

BOSTON PARTNERS IN EDUCATION INC wrote -

Founded in 1966, Boston Partners in Education enhances the academic achievement and nurtures the personal growth of Boston's public school students by providing them with focused, individualized in-school volunteer support.

Boston Partners in Education has tutored and mentored K-12 students in the Boston Public Schools for 45 years. Our trained volunteers, who serve as academic mentors, help students gain the skills, self-confidence, and the motivation they need to succeed in school and in life.


We are working to close the achievement gap. Students with academic mentors improve their scores on Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) exams,  develop a love for reading and math, and, most importantly, stay in school and graduate!

Teachers and mentors report that students receiving extra attention during the school day show an increased interest in school, improved academic performance in math and literacy, enhanced self-esteem, and a better work ethic.

Boston Partners in Education’s unique model of recruiting, screening, training, matching, and supporting academic mentors who not only tutor, but also build a bond with their students over time, has a proven track record of success.

During the 2009-2010 academic year, we matched 5,821 students in 64 schools throughout the city with 895 volunteers. 75% of our volunteers are matched with students one-on-one or in small groups.
