As part of its commitment to local schools, every month ABC7's Lyanne Melendez tells the story of a local teacher who wants to bring learning to life for his or her students. The idea is to involve ABC7's generous viewers, like you, in supporting teacher innovation and student learning in Bay Area public school classrooms.
DonorsChoose.org envisions a nation where students in every community have the resources they need to learn. Click here to learn more about DonorsChoose.org.
Today, Lyanne Melendez met with Wendy Cram at Leonard R. Flynn Elementary School in San Francisco. Her proposal, "Ker-thunk, Ker-thunk…The Most Annoying Sound to a Teacher" drives home the importance of functional chairs so that students can focus on what they are learning in the classroom rather than on their wobbling broken chairs. You can also visit DonorsChoose.org to read other ideas proposed by teachers. To watch the latest video and story of the Bay Area classroom featured by Lyanne Melendez, please visit ABC7.
DonorsChoose.org thanks ABC7 and its viewers for their vision and generosity in supporting Bay Area students and teachers.
