About JA Classroom Programs
The program was a wonderful deviation from my normal instruction and it was aligned with my curriculum and state standards. It was also right on target as far as being developmentally appropriate.Lori Likins, JA Teacher, Glengarry Elementary School

My students find a different learning environment a relief (different face, different voice and different approach), they enjoy some real life chats with the volunteers, and they feel valued.Virginia Kelly, JA Teacher, Glencliff High School
