Over the past two years BTEC educators have been able to work with hundreds of staff and students from a dozen Chicago-area schools. From SAT prep to trauma trainings, our tutors, teachers and counselors have gone above and beyond to combine high academic expectations, social justice education and social-emotional skill-building. Happy second anniversary BTEC!
As the school year winds down I'll be wrapping up Chicago operations and planning for a potential transition to our new home - Madison, WI. If you're a Madison-area educator who'd like to connect or know a local school or student who might be interested in our support, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Luckily, many of our amazing Chicago educators will continue to work with A Knock at Midnight for our second year of summer school and tutoring during the 2019-20 school year. If you want to get involved, send us a message and we'll connect you with Upward Bound program staff. And if you or someone you know has an interest teaching summer school Spanish or science, check out our last blog post or see below.
Finally, there are too many people to thank individually and without whose help BTEC wouldn't exist! So here is a big THANK YOU for all those who helped with technology, logos, podcasts, advice, curriculum, validation, likes + shares. I appreciate it all, and hope you stay connected to hear about our upcoming ventures.
