On 16 Saturdays throughout the school year, we pair elementary students with high school mentors from across Miami. Together, they read, write, share and laugh- while focusing on the skills and habits of highly successful students and readers.
We engage over 320 students in grades 1st-5th in meaningful learning in June and July. Instead of being exposed to summer slide, our students are able to apply concepts and practices to solve real world problems with engagement through technology and innovative instructional practices. Our team of teachers and leaders develop new approaches and refine their practice with daily learning labs and collaborative structures.
“Unlock the Power of Music” engages 100 students in 3 elementary sites in free, daily, after-school, music programming. Because we believe in the power of community and know that authentic family engagement leads to transformational outcomes for our students we offer weekly family music meals at each site and quarterly performance celebrations. We collaborate with district leaders, principals, teachers and parents to elevate the role of music education as a tool for driving academic excellence.
INNOVATIVE EDUCATOR FELLOWSHIP
This school year, we are assembling a team of dynamic educators who are eager to innovate, refine best practices, and apply new instructional strategies that cause transformational outcomes for students in their classrooms. Together, our fellows will collaborate, research and explore innovative new practices and apply their learning to raise the bar for what an exceptional classroom leader can achieve.
