WE DID IT. WE ALL DID IT.

As May winds down, we wanted to thank all of the teachers, parents, administrators and students for another amazing year of educating across Atlanta. One day, when we're finally able to look back on this, we will remember the challenges that the 2019-2020 school year brought. We will remember the graduates who never got to cross the stage and receive their diplomas. We will remember the empty halls. We'll remember having to explain to kids who want to go to school and see their friends that they can't just yet. 

We'll also remember the people who rose to meet the moment. The teachers all over the world who adapted to change and worked together on virtual lesson plans. The parents who shouldered the responsibility of helping to educate from home. Above all, we'll remember that even when things got hard, we gave everything we could to help the children. We did not abandon our future. 

We're hopeful that next school year will not look like this school year. As we figure out how to educate in the future, it's groups like the Teach On Project that are working to find, fund and nurture the educators working on building tomorrow's classroom. We can't wait to meet our 2020 nominees and work with them on projects designed to make a difference in students' lives. 

Here's to another year of giving our all to make a difference. 

Dr. Andrew Lovett

GRANTEE SPOTLIGHT

Over the next few months we'll be shining a light on some of our 2019 grantees. We're starting with Dr. Andrew Lovett, principal at Benteen Elementary School in Atlanta. Dr. Andrew Lovett, Jr. is a 17 year educator in the Atlanta Public Schools system, and was featured on NPR for his efforts in working to turn around Benteen Elementary School.

Dr. Lovett is a shining example of how administrators can make a sizable impact in the lives of students. His project - Building Brilliant Biliterate Readers - is designed to help create access for Spanish-speaking students and their families by having volunteer biliterate readers visit his students and read books in both Spanish and English. The program gives all parents an opportunity to be involved while helping to grow students vocabularies in multiple languages. 

Dr. Lovett brings energy and passion to his job and is a perfect example of what our program is all about.
