Mr. Lambert is a veteran math teacher in Denver Public Schools. Many of his students attend afterschool academic and enrichment programs at the Mi Casa Neighborhood Center.
Mr. Lambert values Mi Casa’s programs as a partner in boosting academic achievement – particularly in math – among students in Northwest Denver.
“The daily Homework Zone offered by Mi Casa is extremely important and helpful for my students.” Mr Lambert says.
“Many do not have a quiet place or someone to help them at home. The students who became regulars in the Homework Zone had much better buy-in to their classes when they arrived prepared with homework completed. The small group setting of Mi Casa’s afterschool tutoring strategy allows for great growth among the students involved.”
