EDUCATE FAIRFAX IN ACTION

HOW WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE

"I continued to be touched by the generosity of others and it has been a joy to remember (Judi Diesenhaus) and create resources for students that wouldn't be possible otherwise."

— Priscille Dando, Coordinator FCPS Library Services
beneficiary of the Judith Diesenhaus Memorial Campaign

"A takeaway that I spoke to the students about were that apprenticeship and skilled work force careers are valued and needed. Having students participate at these events gives them a grasp of the demand for skilled trades.  Several students submitted job applications to the various companies that participated at the job fairs."

— Matt Goetz, Robinson SS teacher
Apprenticeship and Career Fair Experiences

"Allowing my students to interact with students and teachers outside of our program is essential to their generalization of daily life skills."

— Lindsay Warren, West Springfield HS teacher
WAT program

"When the students are able to see their hard work of refurbishing the computers come to fruition through their Bridging the Gap Event, you help them to understand what a difference they are making.  They are proud of themselves and begin to realize that they want to do more."

— Megan Mutsheller, Hayfield SS teacher
Bridging the Gap/Wounded Warrior grant
