My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Community School of Music and Arts, Mountain View, CA, USA
My grand daughters have taken piano lessons at CSMA for several years. I appreciate the thorough and inspirational teaching at the school. Also I love the experience for them AND for us - of attending their recitals several times a year. ! Indeed CSMA teaches many instruments as well as art lessons at the Finn Center. In our local schools - from San Mateo down to Las Gatos, CSMA has a wonderful curricululm in both music and art that progresses through the grades in many of our elementary school districts. It was a treat for me to visit a Mountain View school last May to see an amazing display of their art work - from K to 6th grade!
Review for Environmental Volunteers, Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA
I have taught natural science education in the classroom and taken elementary classrooms on field trips. I have served on the Board for many years as President, Development Chair, Area Coordinator, and Volunteer Coordinator. I have also contributed significant funds to the EVs. I think our hands-on learning both with learning stations in the classroom and small groups on field trips is an important teaching tool. I love the reaction from the children to our explorations!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
teaching in underserved schools. Enabling these children to experience nature has shown positive results in pre and post tests regarding their attitudes. We've found to appreciate the environment leads to cherishing it and then becoming stewards of it!
