Robyn Hatcher of SpeakEtc. is pleased to announce her partnership with The Renaissance Charter High School for Innovation, a new Charter High School in East Harlem. SpeakEtc. will be working with students and faculty at Innovation helping them become more engaging, powerful and successful communicators.
Innovation is not the only NYC school that has reached out to SpeakEtc. Over the summer Robyn worked with the faculty of a private Episcopal school on the Upper West Side. She will return to the school this week to prepare the faculty for their upcoming curriculum night presentations. Says Robyn, “I am so encouraged that these two schools recognize how vital the art of face to face communication is. In this day and age, when so much information is transmitted electronically, we all need to learn and practice the important skills that go into effective in-person communication."
Renaissance Charter High School for Innovation is located at 410 East 100th Street. Its goal is to provide a high achieving, humanistic model of education with a curriculum that combines exceptional classroom instruction, project based learning through student portfolio work, and hands-on, experiential learning. It has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and the Daily News. The principal, Nicholas Tishuk, and Robyn met at a Department of Education presentation and realized how well their missions complimented each other. SpeakEtc. has already given one workshop to the faculty and will work with students once a week starting in November.
