Home Visit Project, Parent & Family Engagement | 01/29/2018

Emma Cepeda
4th grade math teacher

Through the Home Visit Project, I am able to connect with many of my students and their families on a personal level – and it has completely changed my classroom and my school. My students now know that I care about their lives outside of school just as much as I care about what happens in my classroom.

The training and support I receive from Stand for Children through the Home Visit Project has given me the confidence to go out into my school community and develop true partnerships with my students’ families. And it’s paying off. Students feel more connected to me and parents trust me to do what is right for their kids. I want other teachers to have the opportunity to learn how to build strong relationships with their students and their families and with your help it can happen. 

Every single home visit is donor sponsored. Will you help us do one more?

  • Emma, you and I had a couple of classes together in HS. I just wanted to let you know that I just came across this video and it makes me happy to see you at your full potential. I was able to see it in you when were just teenagers but now it's in full fruition. Keep up the good work gorgeous.
