yesterday morning on TODAY i saw an inspirational segment with jenna bush hager. while i love her i always end these segments feeling so bad for her because she seems so nervous. but i digress
her segment was about the SEED schools in washington dc and maryland. The segment high lighted how 100% of the seniors are graduating and 100% are going on to college, with one student even going on to MIAMI!!!!
The students come from high risk situations and are boarded at the school monday-friday and go home for the weekend. the stories were amazing and the student seems truly thankful for the chance they were given.
After graduation next spring i would love to get the chance to work at a school such as SEED. while i have reservations with working with intercity student i would love to change lives. this is why i switched to teaching. i am currently struggling with the idea of staying in the private school system or switching to public. a charter school might be the compromise i need!
