    222 For the Sake of Kids - Modeling & Demonstrating

    WHAT IF ALL TEACHERS WERE EMPOWERED & EQUIPPED TO MAKE A MEANINGFUL IMPACT FOR EVERY STUDENT?
    Teachers are responsible for SO much. They’re overworked and underpaid. Whether a 2nd-grade teacher with a full room of littles, or a high school biology teacher with five sections- it can be an overwhelming load. But they also have tremendous opportunity to shape the lives of so many students.

    But regardless, we don’t think it has to be too complicated. Caring for kids in relevant, meaningful ways can and should happen every day, in every class, by every teacher.
