BENEFITING: NEWTON SCHOOLS FOUNDATION INC
This is my second year in a row running the Boston Marathon and my second year raising funds for students! I'm so excited and grateful to have this opportunity again. The Newton Schools Foundation helps to directly support students whom I interact with on a daily basis. The primary goal is to provide special curriculum both in and out of the classroom while supporting faculty with professional development and closing the achievement gap. Being a teenager is hard enough already, the "struggle is real", but through marathon mentoring I am able to succussfully motivate and empower students to accomplish much more than their potential inside a classroom.
