Twitter Community Member Rewards Our School

In the age of social media and social awareness, our ELAL teacher, Ms. Gerardi, started a YouTube channel and Twitter account to build relationships with other classrooms, students, and educators. After posting a video of her eighth grade class discussion on character archetypes, she was contacted by an impressed member of the Twitter community, who generously donated a year’s supply of Expo Dry-Erase markers. In the accompanying letter, the donor stated, “Please keep reaching our youth, shaping their lives, and giving them a voice! You are doing a fabulous job, and I could tell from the video that they love to learn in your class. Your school and your students are so inspiring! Thank you for your dedication to them!”
