Since our inception, REF has sought to give teachers the tools and skills they need to do their best work. Working closely with the RCSD and the local community, REF has provided teachers with key instructional materials, classroom supplies and support, professional development, coaching and collaboration time. With strong community support, REF has helped teachers do their best work and has altered the educational experience for students.
"REF makes sure I have the materials I need to have the most effective classroom possible. My students never miss out on a learning opportunity because of a lack of supplies." -Greta Streed, 6th grade teacher Cesar Chavez/Green Oaks Academy
