DreamTeachers

DreamWakers enables 4th - 12th grade teachers to bring diverse and dynamic leaders into their classroom to broaden students' horizons and enhance the class lesson plan with real world examples.We work with schools that have more than 50% of the student body on free or reduced lunch and/or in exceptionally rural districts and our services are completely free. Each teacher must have a Gmail or Skype account, internet connection, a projector, speakers, and a computer, tablet, or smartphone with a camera. In order to have an enriching conversation, we require a minimum of 15 students per flashchat. 

DIVERSE + DYNAMIC ROLE MODELS
Our motto is that students can't be what they can't see. The professionals in our speaker corps come from diverse ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds in order to provide students with role models that are not only inspiring, but relatable. 

CRITICAL THINKING + COMPREHENSION
Effective engagement encourages students to discern a speaker’s key points, consider the speaker’s assumptions, ask relevant questions, articulate their own ideas, and build upon the ideas of others. Additionally, the speaker highlights how they employ a variety of subjects to be professionally effective.

ELIMINATE BARRIERS TO ACCESS
Our services are completely free for the classrooms we serve. In order to narrow the opportunity gap we are committed to serving teachers and students in underserved communities in order to provide access and inspiration in areas that need it most.

CONNECT CURRICULUM TO CAREER
Speaking directly with professionals from a wide variety of industries enables students to understand the real world applicability of classroom curriculum and increases interest in subject matter.
