Secondly – thank you to ALL the donors who are helping out the FreeThought Bloggers by taking part in the Donors Choice. Ms. Davis is just one of the dozens of teachers you have helped over the past three weeks, and it’s ending this Saturday. It’s because you do make a difference – and that encourages us all to take part.
“We are one of four all-girl public schools in New York City, with students ranging from 6th to 12th grades. These girls come from low income areas where the high school graduation rates are on a decline. Our goal is to empower these young ladies by providing them with a strong education and to help them realize that college is more than just a dream, it is their future. My students are motivated and dedicated young women. They love to be engaged in science and exploratory activities. I want to give them every advantage that I can to do so.”
