Carmen Johnson teaches fifth grade math at Crockett Elementary School, and has worked alongside┬áiEducateUSA Fellows since the program’s inception. She recently asked her students to write anonymous letters to students at a prospective school, letters that she says “open our eyes to the childrens’ perspective of how great the iEDU┬áprogram truly is”. These letters are displayed below.
The iEducateUSA Fellows┬átake┬ágood students and make them into great students. Students at the beginning of the year who had little faith in their math abilities are now convinced that┬áthey can be successful, because┬áthe Fellows encourage them to think and reason. Every student has grown academically from their relationships with the Fellows, a relationship of trust where the students look up to these college undergraduates as role models. They recognize that it takes hard work to learn so they study harder and persevere.
I wish that this program could be replicated for every elementary campus.
