Can You Help an Amazing Educator Help Other Educators?

Educators are such giving individuals.  In the end, no matter where or what we teach, our goals are the same:  To make a positive impact and help students discover the joy of learning.  It starts with effective educators.  I want to tell you about one and how you can help.

St. Claire Adriaan is one of the most dynamic and effective educators in our country.  I met him back in 2006 at the 2006 Disney Teacher Awards.  St. Claire is the REAL DEAL!  He's an amazing middle school math teacher who connects with all students, and is now he's an educational leader.  He turned around a failing school in New Orleans, and has made an positive impact in every position he's been undertaken.  Now he has a mission for his summer break.
St. Claire is on a mission to help improve student achievement in his hometown of Cape Elizabeth, South Africa.  Students in his hometown have scored last in the province on student achievement.  His goal is to take with him two American teachers and provide some much needed teacher development and coaching.  

As St. Claire says, "I know that it is my duty to help my city, my people, and my province provide our students with an excellent education.  I need help helping the students in South Africa.  A better teacher leads to higher expectations, better results and successful students." If you can help, please visit his Go Fund Me page.  Be sure to watch the 4 minute video so you can get to know the kind of teacher St. Claire is.  Thank you for anything you can do to help St. Claire help students!
