Santa Fe Partners in Education is an organization that helps teachers in many ways. They reimburse tuition for teachers who continue their education, they give teacher grants for teachers that have innovative projects but no way of funding them, they pay for school busses for field trips, and they honor a number of Teachers Who Inspire every spring.
I approached Santa Fe Partners in Education in late January about the possibility of them providing a sponsorship for the LISTO Program, and they were very happy to meet. Ruthanne Greeley, the Executive Director of Santa Fe Partners in Education, and I sat down over coffee one day during my prep period and she was excited to be able to provide a $1000 tuition assistance so that the LISTO Program could continue.
Here it is, almost six months later, and I leave for Mexico tomorrow! The fourteen educators who signed up for LISTO will be soon to follow. Thank you Santa Fe Partners in Education for helping us get there!
