Druid Hills High School is an urban campus with a large population of students who are political refugees, some born and raised in refugee camps. Close to 36 foreign languages are spoken. English teacher Alexandra Salivia identified a need for books that are of high interest to students but with low readability because students lack the reading fluency to read most books in English. Alexandra requested and received the books through DonorsChoose.org. When the books arrived, students were excited to see not only the books, but also the involvement of the community in supporting their education. Watch this interview with Alexandra and her students to learn more about Donors Choose and the impact it’s making in a local community.
