2006 Teacher Winner
School: Benteen Elementary, Second-Grade
Project: “Boys to Men Mentoring Program ”
Ms. Lawrence believed her project would significantly impact the student achievement and self-esteem of African-American males who trail all major demographic groups on standardized tests. The combinations of tutoring and mentoring relationships would pair third-, fourth- and fifth-grade males with Amorphous College students and focus on preparations for the CRCT.
