Hi Friends and Family!
I'm running the New York Marathon for the second year to raise money for the AMAZING school I work at, Success Aademy.
My kids are from the South Bronx, where there are not many great schools, little is expected of children from the community. I honestly believe that Success gives our kids the opportunity to see beyond what others expect of them and to not just dream, but achieve incredible things in their lives.
They come to school and take chess, and do science experiments every day. We got to take them on an overnight camping trip last year when many of them had never been outside of the city before! They debate and prove theories in class, and ask for extra practice at home. My kids blow me away every day by how hard working, passionate, and loving they are, and I can't say enough about how deserving they are of your support.
Read below and check out the pictures to learn more about Success Academy and PLEASE donate anything you can - seriously, even just a couple dollars - to the school and our kids!
Thank you so much for your support!
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.
