Goal


What a year it has been. This year’s “Back to School” was dramatically different from what we expected and has been incredibly hard on our students, parents and teachers. Students across the country are trapped behind computers, away from their friends and the in-school learning environments they deserve. Furthermore, as we know, this has been hardest on our most vulnerable children and families, the ones with the fewest resources; the students of color who are the perpetual victims of systemic inequity, for whom school serves a much larger purpose than reading or arithmetic.


Through all of this, I am inspired each day by our teachers. The educators who are shining through the isolation and the harsh glare of our screens, working harder than ever before. They are striving to make learning not only accessible but engaging for every student, putting community and equity at the center of their work. 


But, we must remember, that this moment is HARD. Teachers are tasked with rising above and working to make school as meaningful as alway for our kids; filled with love, wonder and an excitement to learn. 

This holiday season it is our responsibility to ensure that they have the resources and support they need.
