Atlanta Star Teacher - Lisa Chawla
of Georgia ::
is extremely passionate about JA's
mission and focus to close the gap
between the community and education worlds.
As a business high school teacher, she loves JA curriculum for the correlation it provides to the school curriculum and for the enriched life skills we bring to the students.
sees it as a huge value for her
students to have a business volunteer standing in front of the classroom teaching the programs and sharing their real life knowledge to these students.
Last year we partnered Euromax with Norcross High School
, and from the beginning Lisa
formed a great relationship with her
volunteers, taking full advantage of everything Euromax had to offer.
Ms. Chawla is a huge advocate for JA among her peers and is the main reason we have been able to impact as many classes as we have at Norcross HS.
For example, at the beginning of the year she
hosts a little party for the teachers that participated serving drinks, snack and desert items giving each a gift and opportunity for me to discuss any news ideas, programming and class registration with the teachers.
