June Update: Classes with Liety our on Staff Teacher

Cats Corner:

Leity is one of our, full time, on staff teachers. She drives almost 2 hours from her home to come and work at the center, and she loves it. She is committed to our kids and is excited to be a part of rounding off their education by offering tutoring and help to those struggling in school. It is a requirement for those children in our program to attend school and to do their best. Due to the school system being very compromised we feel it imperative to offer these classes, so our kids have a greater chance of going to post-secondary education after completing high school. The kids in our program are required to show our staff their report cards, so they are away from where they are at academically. If a child is not passing, they are then required to attend tutoring as a mandatory activity, until their grades go up. Also in the parental classes held for the parents, we also encourage them to take an active role and interest in their child’s education. Leity also teaches English classes to those interested.
