Show Teachers the Love!

Early in May, during National Teacher Week, we put on a star-studded variety show that celebrates teachers. It’s also our only fundraiser, but it’s a special kind of fundraiser because half the audience are teachers, who come for free to feel the love. The other half are donors, who come to show it. There’s joy in the air.

A moving highlight of the evening is the presentation of the Woodridge Award for Great Teachers, given by prominent New Yorkers to a teacher who changed their lives.
