Mollie and I are so excited to welcome a new program into our classrooms when we return from winter break. Sheree Bos, a wonderful teacher in our district, has been heading a growing initiative called Be the Dream for the past three years. This program seeks out African American males who are looking to give back to their community and partners them with educators and their students. These role models come into the classroom to conduct a variety of activities such as reading aloud to students and sharing their life stories and life lessons to name just a couple.
The beauty of this program is the connection made between the volunteer, teacher, and students. It is so important to expose students to a variety of people who are able to help motivate and inspire them to achieve their dreams. This program has been doing just that and now Sheree is helping us bring the benefits of the program to our kiddos.
