I've spent the past two summers as a master teacher at Aim High. I teach for a living, but these summers have not been just another teaching gig. Aim High is a unique organization in that it serves the children who currently attend its summer programs, but it also serves generations of children yet to come.
It does this by training new teachers. Its staff teams are composed of professional teachers, student teachers, people changing careers, and teenagers interested in helping other teenagers. The experience of Aim High helps all of these people to become better teachers, and it involves all of these people in the education system.
The more people involved in and informed about our education system, the better served our youth will be.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the development of my own teaching skills, which serve all the children I teach.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
meeting and working with wonderful staff members and fantastic students.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
energetic, idealistic, and hard-working.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
educate our youth in the way that they deserve: with love, skill, and care.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About once a year
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
Professional with expertise in this field & Taught middle school classes.
