There are 60,000 refugees living in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. A third of those are children. At Riley Elementary, a school with 500 refugee students, one 5th grade teacher is making a huge difference. Catherine Wilson has created a method of teaching that allows these students to THRIVE! Last year alone, she took her class of 27 students from 7 different countries (non-English speaking) from 0% proficiency to 37% across the board - IN ONE YEAR!!! We are partnering with Catherine to create a supportive structure to help her build and share her model with other teachers. With the money we raise we will be creating training videos and manuals. We will also be coordinating the efforts of other agencies set up to assist refugees in community integration. Help us make a powerful impact in the lives of refugee & immigrant children everywhere! We are set to take this model to cities across the country and into refugee camps around the world. THANKS FOR BEING A PART OF THIS LUFE CHANGING ENDEAVOR!!!
