JeTSI Gives Back Throughout 2014

January 20, 2015

Herndon, Virginia– In 2014, Jeffries Technology Solutions, Inc. (JeTSI) decided to make donations in support of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and teachers throughout the year.

Leslie Jeffries, JeTSI CEO, regularly checks in with DonorsChoose.org to see how teachers are hoping to engage their students and their project needs. Throughout 2014, JeTSI has sent donations for math manipulatives & games, weather kits, solar system kits, robotics technology, light boards, and even physical education equipment for outdoor fun. The responses from the teachers and the kids are quite enthusiastic!

“I am so overwhelmed by the amount of science curriculum now contained on the shelves of our truly blessed classroom! The students were so excited when we unpacked the box, and the oldest boy just kept saying ‘wow, cool!’ after every new item we took out.”

“This project has boosted my ability to teach math. My students love when they can use manipulatives to model math problems, have dice to roll, can play games, or even get to work on something independently that isn’t just another worksheet.”

“Thank you so much for your generous gift to my students. We have spent the last six weeks going over weather phenomena and your gifts have benefited them greatly. They have enjoyed all the extra emphasis we were able to place on certain phenomena because of your gifts.”

Our CEO is almost as enthusiastic as the teachers, “Couldn’t resist helping a teacher with only 8 days left to fund her science project.”

JeTSI also made our annual donation to the Society for Science and the Public who shares our vision of promoting a love for science. Their annual science and engineering competitions are a great way to direct, encourage, and motivate students.
