Instructor in Department of Writing and Rhetoric, University of Colorado at Boulder

In recognition of his work to provide tutoring support for BVSD students enrolled in CTE and Options Academy classes

Presenter: Kady Haisley, Arapahoe Campus Assistant Principal

Since the fall of 2012, Danny and Kady have been working together in a partnership between CU-Boulder and BVSD around service learning and tutoring on the Arapahoe Campus. Each semester, university students in Danny's Rhetorical Writing course are required to put in service learning hours. Since its inception, this collaboration has brought in over 40 volunteer tutors and 400 hours of support for the students on the Arapahoe Campus. Primarily these tutors have been supporting culturally and linguistically diverse students in high school classes. This past spring, Danny worked to expand the program to include support in the CTE and Options Academy classes. Danny's efforts have translated into support for students from every high school across the district who enrolled in a CTE class or into a credit recovery class at Arapahoe Campus. Danny has also collaborated with Boulder High School; specifically with their AVID and their Adelante! programs.
