From Ms. Buffalo’s announcement of the event:
This organization is a vision come true for me dating back to the late 1980’s. I am an Elementary Education teacher, and have been for 25 years,–mostly in Title I schools in both North Carolina and Georgia. My experience is with the upper elementary grade levels, but I am also certified to work with students K- 8. I am very passionate about teaching and tutoring as a means to help our students reach their full potential by fostering a passion for learning. In my experience, I find that face-to-face
and virtual tutoring programs are needed in the 21st Century to ensure our students’
achieve the life-long success we educators desire.
The mission of At S.T.R.E.A.M (4A’s )is to serve as a support system for the economically disadvantaged youth from first to sixth grades in elementary and middle schools.
