THE STORY:

Hi everyone! Welcome to our Crowdrise page!! Just to share a little bit about ourselves, we co-teach at Nueva Esperanza Charter Academy, a Partnerships to Uplift Communities (PUC) middle school in San Fernando, CA. We have been working together for 3 years, and have worked tirelessly to empower our students, parents and our community. As we were working on building our teacher voice, we were drawn to Educators 4 Excellence (E4E) and their teacher policy team. Common Core is here to stay, and this policy team honed in on how to best help our students and schools by creating recommendations to effectively support Common Core Implementation. Through this policy team, we were able to work along alongside 16 brilliant teachers across the Los Angeles area to brainstorm effective ways to implement Common Core at four levers: state, union, district, and school. Our recommendations both focused on the school level, in that Jessica’s team addressed the importance of parent involvement with CCSS, while Jennifer’s team advocated for the need of teacher leadership with CCSS curriculum, PD, and data use.

 

On May 28th, we both will be speaking at the launch event of our policy paper so we can not only introduce our recommendations, but also advocate how YOU all can get involved with them and help us make them a reality.

 

Being a part of E4E has been a great experience for us, and we look forward to advocating for our students alongside other E4E members and staff. Thank you so much for your support!

 

Best,

Jess and Jen

 

 

EDUCATORS FOR EXCELLENCE wrote -

Each May, Educators 4 Excellence (E4E) honors the hard work of hundreds of teachers across the country by turning the nationally celebrated Teacher Appreciation Week into a month long celebration. We believe a week is not enough to recognize the hard work, dedication, accomplishments and leadership of teachers.

 

This May, #ThankaTeacher by donating to E4E. Your donation will support the leadership development and impact of teachers in Los Angeles by defraying the costs of grassroots organizing efforts, Teacher Leadership Program trainings, publishing Teacher Policy Team white papers, and supporting teacher advocacy of policies that are good for students.
