This week I had a fabulous experience working with Breakthrough Greater Boston. Their experienced staff knocked it out of the park this year for their annual Gala. With inspiring students and teachers around every corner, engaging speakers, and hands on stations showcasing the abilities of their students, there is no doubt in my mind why they continue to be a leader in transforming education.
This year's Spirit Award went to Jonathan Kozol, who gave a thought provoking speech regarding his views of our current educational system. His words sparked enthusiasm from the crowd and his goal was to also "pass the torch" onto the students and teachers that are directly impacted through Breakthrough Greater Boston's mission. If you don't know about this organization, please check them out.
