When I was at Giddens- Steadham Elementary School , I attended WE Day and was inspired to do something to help our community . My friends Ava , Charish , Miriam , Alaina and I had a shoe drive . We collected 540 pairs of shoes and donated them to Life Message to help families in Rowlett .
Joe Luna
JA BizTown ® Coordinator Gilbreath-Reed Career and Technical Center
I am proud to guide sixth-graders during their daylong visit to our simulated town , following weeks of in-class learning . Students operate and manage stores , write checks , and even use their own debit cards , helping them connect the dots between what they learn in class and the real world .
Jeanie Greenidge
AVID Secondary Program Manager Special Programs Department
I love my job transforming students into scholars ! AVID is an amazing framework of skills and strategies that helps students and educators . Teachers learn how to be the best possible facilitators of lessons that incorporate writing , inquiry , collaboration and reading , which allows our AVID students to graduate ready to tackle the 21st century .
Jalen “ Moose ” Mayden
Class of 2018 Sachse High School
When I was invited to the first NFL Prep Academy , we had a session about giving back to our communities . I thought about what concerned me , and the answer was hungry children . I spoke with my mother , set a plan and created the See Me Beyond charity . I got my family and Sachse teammates involved to gather monthly food donations for Life Message , which helps over 500 families a month .
Sofía Núñez
Parent Engagement Facilitator Title III Family & Community Engagement Department
I love making it easier for schools and families of English learners to work together ! From facilitating free English and computer classes for parents , to organizing parent field trips , to offering best practice workshops for GISD employees — my job cannot be more rewarding .
