Ellen is encouraging all her fans and viewers to help support her latest amazing guests, second grade teacher Michael Bonner and his students at South Greenville Elementary! South Greenville is a Title I elementary school in Greenville, NC, based in a neighborhood with a 100% poverty rate. Despite the circumstances, the students are resilient in their pursuit of education, and led by amazing teachers like Mr Bonner, featured on the Ellen Show today!
Mr Bonner explained that the school is in dire need of funding and materials, as many of the students are homeless and have very difficult home lives. Through unique and fun lesson plans and activities (like educational rap videos!), he has found ways to reach his students and make a difference. The school is on a tight budget however, and many teachers like Mr Bonner reach into their own pockets to provide kids with school supplies, clothing and meals.
Any and all donations will help this school reach its full potential! Join the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Walmart in giving back to this deserving teacher and school!
