Hero and Project Description: 

Tomeo’s innovative teaching idea, “Mirrors & Windows/Globally Aware,” focuses on creating a global awareness and citizenship project to increase young readers' experience with diversity. The Tri-Valley School’s mission is to nurture, empower and inspire today's students to positively shape tomorrow's world. With the funds from the Voya grant, Tomea will purchase diverse books for the school’s library collection. If sufficient funds are leftover, Tomeo and her students will host one or more diverse authors, which would tremendously impact student awareness and perspective on global citizenship.
