5. Kids Helping Kids - A Student Run Non-Profit | Jamie DeVries
On our show today, we have a teacher by the name of Jamie DeVries. Jamie is a teacher from San Marcos Senior High School in Santa Barbra, California. He has also worked with to found a non-profit organization known as Kids Helping Kids that helps bring a sense of community to his classroom, impact surrounding and international communities, and uses a real-world based curriculum to bring a concert with big named artists to their neighborhood. In this show, we discuss Kids Helping Kids, some of the insights he collected along the way, and his best advice for other teachers interested in trying something ‘outside of the box’ within their classrooms. Jamie is doing some fantastic things that I personally feel we should try to emulate more as teachers. I’m excited for you all to hear this one!
