If you like to work with elementary school students, come join the six of us who

travel to Mary B. Martin school each Tuesday morning. Each of us works with

a particular teacher and his/her students for about 2 hours.  This is our second year

and more teachers are wanting to be part of the program.  Students from Pre K to

8th grade are waiting for you !

Do let us know if you are interested. Call (216 752-9493) or email ( Elaine Stevens to discuss how you might be a part of this adventure.

Many members are also involved in the Greater Cleveland Congregations' Education Task Force (see more about this elsewhere on this site.)
