Teacher Appreciation Day . . . Six Months Early!
Boosterthon loves teachers. We get the opportunity to watch teachers influence their students every day. They can’t be thanked enough for what they do for the next generation. And that’s why, when we get the chance, we love hiring teachers; they can make THE BEST Boosterthon team members. They’re sharp, caring, and extremely hard working. (You knew that though).
With many to choose from, we’d like to celebrate four teachers who are now influencing schools as Boosterthon team members—a “Teacher Appreciation Day” . . . six months early.
Taylor Fiske, Program Assistant, Charlotte, NC.
Taylor was a fourth grade teacher at Davidson Elementary in Charlotte, NC, when Boosterthon came to her campus. “I had the opportunity to experience first-hand how transformative the program can be for a school,” Taylor said. She taught for another year before applying to Boosterthon and is now a Program Assistant on our Charlotte Team. “I am so excited to be part of an organization that aligns with so many of my passions and that exists to strengthen schools.”
Coby Rossen, Program Director, Atlanta, GA.
Before working with Boosterthon, Coby worked in the school system for 7 years. He started out by developing and leading an after-school program and then taught 3 years of Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade PE. He says, “As a teacher, you look for those rare opportunities to teach your students what it means to be a person of character, but those moments are often few and far between. With Boosterthon, I get to do that all day every day!”
Matt Deedrick, Program Leader, South Florida.
After receiving a Masters of Science from Fordham University in Teaching with an emphasis on special education, Matt went on to teach 6th-8th grade social studies. “I wanted to stay in education, but I knew I wasn't meant to be in the classroom,” said Matt. “With Boosterthon, I love that I get the chance to come alongside teachers and students, who need to be supported.”
Jessica Fowler, Home Office Program Director, Atlanta, GA.
For 6 years, Jessica taught 5th grade reading and writing at Powdersville Elementary in Greenville, SC. She heard about Boosterthon when the program first came to her school. Jessica says, “Having seen the program from both sides now (3 years as a Boosterthon teacher and 2 as a team member), I can honestly say that we offer the most transformative school program out there! I joined Boosterthon to help Change the World, and I firmly believe we are doing that each and every day."
These are just a few of the many Boosterthon team members who have been teachers or have educational experience—from our teams serving schools to our Home Office. They add so much value to our program and we’re proud to have them on our team!
And “thank you” teachers for how you selflessly lead our next generation.
Hey, surprise your teacher with a “Teacher Appreciation Day” SIX MONTHS EARLY!'
