Making a Worldwide Difference Locally
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
Trenton High School is an old building with limited resources and a large population of culturally diverse students and recent immigrants all dealing with a variety of challenges including, gang pressures, language barriers, and low parental involvement in education. The school is in a district where people are underemployed and faced with severe economic challenges. The classrooms reflect this lack, from the holes in the blackboard to the need for basic supplies for teachers and students.
Curtis Aubry, a 9th grade algebra teacher, set out to transform his classroom, literally, and to engage and empower his students in their Math work. He invited friends, family and business community to contribute funds towards supplies for his room. In a short period of time he had received hundreds of dollars to improve his classroom. And IntelLidrives was proud to participate in this effort along with Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and HP and National Lab Day.
"Next I'll ask for field trips," says Curtis. "I am currently selecting 15 kids who have an interest in business to attend a business luncheon at Princeton Hyatt. They´ll have an opportunity to network with people from local hospitals and universities. I´m going to have them wear suits, make their own business cards and indicate what kind of work they want to do over the summer. I am raising my students to be fully functioning adults in the world by teaching them things such as anger management, time management, and responsibility."
