Reading well equates to recognition. In life or at work, broad social participation requires skill in language arts and thinking ability. Today fluency translates into better life options. The demand for student achievement is essential to earning. Vital decision making is a driver of our economy.
Educator, performer, and the Director of New Education Options, Inc. a California public benefit charity, Bo works or volunteers to advocate for learners. Teamed with William Elliott in Greater LA and the Inland Empire, they use writing and music as a catalyst for student school success.
An Arts in Education instructor, artist, and coach, she applies ESL, English Language Arts and Reading pedagogy to risk taking and creativity helping at-risk students to "learn how they learn". Their initiative "The Water Buddy Project" uses songwriting to bring cognitive learning theories into rigorous and relevant application in the classroom or as after-school enrichment programs. In 2005, they became 'No Child Left Behind Supplemental Service Title I Providers' for At-Risk Learners. This year they are building a community of educators and advocates to fund jobs new ways, train arts education teachers, and provide information to parents and schools on programs that build vocabulary. Using national core standards to build reading comprehension through Science (STEM) skills, Bo uses music to link gains in reading, linguistics, memory and word play.
