It’s Teacher Appreciation Week during our Law Day All Month campaign! Teachers have a very significant, lifelong impact on all of their students. This impact involves not only the teaching of particular academic skills, but as importantly, the fostering of student self-confidence.
On their path to learning about the law, JTB’s programs teach problem solving, how to analyze information from a variety of sources, communication skills, how to present an oral argument, research skills, and how to effectively work with a team. JTB measures its impact through surveys completed by students that show 90% are more interested in becoming a lawyer, 93% have a better understanding of what lawyers and judges do, and 90% are more confident in their ability to perform legal-based tasks.
We credit our Program Manager, Missy Jeje, M.Ed. for her work designing program curricula to teach students about the legal field. Especially with the need for virtual programming, Missy’s creative content is engaging for the students while successfully executing our well-established goals.
Celebrate Missy and all of our teachers with a gift to JTB today! Consider making your contribution in honor of a favorite teacher or student.
