Our Stage I, II and III science teacher, Dianne O’Connor, is teaching science in southwest Detroits in a program called “Brilliant Detroit” which was co-founded by former Roeper parent, Cindy Eggleton. This organization aims to bridge “the access gap, combining people and place and providing the supports and services families need, right in the middle of a neighborhood. Inside a renovated home, just blocks or doors away from where families with young kids live and play.” A goal is to prepare the many young children who don’t attend pre-school for kindergarten. Here is an article which features the program. Thank you Dianne for providing your valuable expertise as a teacher in this worthy program!
