KIDS EXCEL EL PASO INC
January 6, 2011

As a teacher and a parent, I can attest to the positive benefits of the KEEP program. I was VERY skeptical at first. I'm a male teacher and my son was going to be doing the program. I didn't quite like the idea of my learning "dance" for 45 minutes a week.
However, after sitting in on every practice and watching the rehearsals and the final performances, I can't properly express how much I appreciate the program. I love the people involved and the smiles on all of the students' faces after each practice. The students always came from practice refreshed and ready to work. I had the best TAKS scores I've ever had last year (the first year of the program at our school). I feel that having this program was a factor in that.
All fourth graders need to experience this wonderful program.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my experience as a parent and teacher. I taught my son's 4th grade math and science class last year. I had the pleasure of experiencing every practice, rehearsal and performance with my son as his teacher and father.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

make it available to all 4th grade students in every school. There is not one thing negative about this program. All logistical aspects are handled by the Kids Excel staff. What they bring to any educational organization adds positive "vibes" to all involved. To not be able to say anything negative about this program is THE perfect reason to make it a part of every campus.

MY ROLE:
Volunteer & I am a 4th Grade teacher with students in Kids Excel.
