My story

[p]Through my endeavors with education focused organizations, I came across Big Change and couldn't be more excited for what they're doing for teachers and students alike. [/p][p]In the U.S., the programs I work on focus on first generation, low income Americans that we work with over their high school careers to mold into University ready students.[/p][p]Big Change has a bigger approach in the UK, focusing on both students and teachers alike to try and reverse some of the truly scary statistics:[/p][p][b]More than 1/4 of teachers are turning to medication to cope with the stress of their new work.[/b][/p][p][b]40% of new teachers leave the profession within 5 years of qualifying.[/b][/p][p][b]Research has found a 19 month gap in development between the richest and the poorest children by the age of five.[/b][/p][p]Help me work with Big Change to fund companies who are focusing on turning these statements around.[/p][p]"There are those of us who firmly believe that our intellectual capacity is a fixed trait; that our capabilities are predetermined and finite. These individuals see failure as a demonstration of their limits.[/p][p]And then there are those of us who believe that our intellect is malleable and can be developed over time; that success comes as a result of effort, learning, and persistence. Failure is in this case perceived as a chance to learn and grow."[/p]
