PDX Summer School had a successful summer! In our second summer of teaching, the organization grew from tutoring three students to 32! There were four teacher teaching the students in groups of four. Each teacher taught two one-hour sessions per day, Monday through Thursday. The program was a great success.
We also learned a lot about what to do next year. In particular, we hope to increase the length of time spent with each student — one hour wasn’t enough! We would also like to increase the number of teachers and the number of students. This will be dependent on funding, of course. But it was great to see how well the program did work.
Unfortunately, I was out of town for our end of the year BBQ, but I heard that was also a great success! Now to start fundraising and getting ready for next year.
