My Crew students are currently in the process of applying to colleges. Of course, then, they need to apply to the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA for short. We devoted a day in Crew to talk about the process itself and the steps one has to take in order to get their money (we also discussed the Tuition Assistance Program provided by NY State). It was illuminating for some students to find out that they could get thousands of free dollars for college. This Friday we will be working on it in class.
I am a math teacher in the New York Department of Education. I infuse technology and real-world problems into my curriculum in order to prepare my students for the future. I would love for people across the country to recognize we teachers can't do it alone. If you don't believe me, come visit my classroom!
