DonorsChoose: Reading FUNdamentals

 

I decided to stick close to home this month. I chose to help Mrs. Jacobson’s class build a firm foundation in phonics.

Whenever I can I try and spend time volunteering and tutoring students in the Twin Cities area. I spend a lot of time with high school students, either trying to get into the college of their dreams or trying to just make it to graduation day. From my time with them, I understand the importance of building a strong foundation. It is both easier and more effective to build from this foundation than to go back and repair it down the road. read more »

Maps, Our Window To The World – DonorsChoose April 2013

 

For this month’s donors choose donation, I chose to donate to Ms. Tolub’s project to broaden her classroom’s horizons.

Ms. Tolub is currently teaching with outdated maps that do not include some of the countries that have been created in the last 10 years. Our world is quickly changing and maps are our window to the world. read more »

Innovation is a currency we seem to be dealing with a lot these days in our own marketing space: new marketing software, better integration of marketing channels (aka omni channel), etc.  What can be easily overlooked is that we don’t always have to look to the future for innovation, we can also look in to the past. read more »
