BENEFITING: Success Academy Charter Schools
ORGANIZER: Success Academy Charter Schools
EVENT DATE: Nov 01, 2015
Hello! Welcome to my fundraising page for the 2015 New York City Marathon with Team Success! Please consider supporting me as I run on behalf of the thousands of New York City school children.
For the past four years, I have had the priviledge of working at Success Academy Harlem 3 as a 4th Grade Associate Teacher and, more recently, a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grade Science Teacher. Each day, I strive to provide the best teaching to my scholars as they question, test, and discover. I'm not only passionate about teaching my scholars to be great scientists, but I'm just as passionate about teaching them to be successful in life. As a teacher, I've witnessed each of my scholars push themselves beyond what they think is possible and succeed by working hard and never giving up. If I can ask them to meet my high expectations, I KNOW that I can do the same by pushing myself to run 26.2 miles.
Thank you for your support!
Below is more information about my school's mission:
Our goal is to provide world-class education to our scholars and we are constantly innovating to ensure we are employing the absolute best and most financially efficient methods of educating them. Every day we work to create a rigorous and joyful learning environment for our own scholars while pushing for education policy reform so that ALL children have access to education they deserve. And we are incredibly proud of what our scholars have achieved! They are among the brightest, highest-achieving students in the state of New York thanks to the support of our dedicated teachers, staff and parents, as well as the preparation provided by our comprehensive curriculum and school model. Importantly, while attaining stellar test scores is certainly wonderful, it is not our primary focus. Rather, our objective is to prepare our scholars with a best-in-class education foundation that sets them up for success in college and beyond.
