Community Impact: Breathing life into education
SEF dives deep into our district needs and adds a touch of life into our student’s educational journey.
1. Why do you support SEF?
I support SEF because this organization is an integral community partnership that supports San Gabriel schools in grades TK-12. SEF has brought many programs and opportunities to our district providing a multitude of ways students can learn, feel connected and enjoy their educational experience.
For example, Washington Elementary School has benefited from our SEF collaboration last year via the Book Giveaways and Author Series Presentations. How fortunate we were to have published author, Julie Berry, visit our school, read her book, and speak to the children in an open forum about a career in becoming an author and illustrator and open up about her journey in writing! Not to mention, whenever you can put a book into the hands of children, the reward is abundant. The magical moment of them leaving campus and showing their parent the book they received is awesome.
2. In your opinion, what is the One Thing that SEF does that enriches students lives?
SEF dives deep into our district needs and adds a touch of life into our student’s educational journey. Children have many interests that go beyond what can be taught in a classroom setting. This is where SEF shines. It allows an additional learning opportunity for students who enjoy the freedom to explore and discover who they are. SEF offers experiences to students that will be cemented into their memory as fun and meaningful. I look forward to learning how SEF will continue to augment the growth of the students in our district.
