Oprah is Knocking Down Barriers to Excellence in Education

Oprah is Knocking Down Barriers to Excellence in Education

Everyone of us gets through the tough times because somebody is there, standing in the gap to close it for us.

~ Oprah Winfrey

Hi Everyone,

Our world, our country, our school, our children…our hope for a brighter tomorrow rests upon our shoulders today.

Parents and educators are scrambling to provide quality education to children, despite budget cuts and limited resources.   Complacency is not an option.  Alternatively, when the public joins together and simply contributes what is possible, you build something called an Angel Network.  This week, Oprah recognized six charter schools by presenting each of them with  1 million dollars from her Angel Network fund!

Her fortunate recipients are: Denver School of Science and Technology, Aspire Public Schools, LEARN Charter Schools, YES Prep Public Schools, Mastery Charter Schools, and New Orleans Charter Science and Math Academy.  Congratulations on a receiving a wonderful gift that will enrich your students’ lives and all of the lives that they too will influence!

TinyEYE values our partnership with the schools we serve through our award winning online speech therapy platform.  It is our privilege to eliminate barriers to quality speech therapy services, such as budget restraints, staff shortages, and geographical challenges. Our outstanding Speech-Language Pathologists are committed to your schools and to ensuring success for your students.   Growing your students into confident, competent communicators and triumphant life learners is what we do best!

Decades from now, we will be in a better position to judge the impact of our education today.  Consider these skills:  empathy, awareness, considering others’ perspectives, knowledge, socialization, problem solving, negotiation, learning and adapting, innovation,  communication, independence, team work, and integrity.  Consider how our children will acquire and apply these traits.   Consider what this education means for our children, our school, our country…our world.
