In an effort to support and recognize teachers and schools, the newly established Georgian Court University School of Education Club set up a school supply drive with the help of Cassandra Lo, Ed.D., assistant professor of education and director of the School of Education’s pre-education program. In February, three of the club’s officers—Jennifer Tregillies, president; Jenna Yascur, vice president; and Kelsi Sanfilippo-Crennan, secretary, presented the collected school supplies to Spruce Street School in Lakewood, New Jersey. The donated supplies included books, pencils, glue sticks, and sensory toys.
Jenna, a mathematics and education major, is aspiring to become a special education teacher at an elementary school, and says that the visit to Spruce Street School was a rewarding experience for both her and the club.
“This was something we really wanted to do, and we are so happy we did,” says Jenna. “It means a lot to be able to help out and support the schools in our own community.”
