Teach In is November 16, 2016
Each November, in celebration of American Education Week
, the Foundation brings business and civic leaders into the classrooms – in a fun and engaging way -- to talk with students in about academics, careers and the future. This year's Teach-In theme is "Great Public Schools - A Basic Right and Our Responsibility."
Some volunteer read books to pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten students. Some teach practical, personal skills to high school students such as managing a checking account and using credit cards wisely. Others involve entire middle school classes in projects like a mock election. Some give demonstrations using musical instruments or scientific equipment to 5th graders.
Last year, over 3,500 volunteers made nearly 7,600 presentations in 167 schools. What an amazing impact!
