Matching Grant at TECH
We're at $14,100 so far - more than half way to our goal - thanks to all who have donated so far!
To recap - we have an offer of a $10,000 Matching Donation from an anonymous donor. To take advantage of this unique opportunity, we need to raise $20,000 in donations in December by CLICKING HERE.
We are hoping that even more families will contribute at some level in order for us to attain this generous $10,000 gift.
We recommend donations of $500 per year per student, though any amount is greatly appreciated and put to excellent use. If your family is able to give more, your extra help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! The more money we raise, the more we can help our students!
Download a copy of the donation form (also in chinese), or donate online. The PTA is a 501(c)(3) corporation, eligible for most employers' matching gift funds. Please ask your employer if your gift qualifies.

Dr. Jasmine Pena, World Languages
Dr. Jasmine Pena, Assistant Principal of World Languages, received her doctorate in educational leadership from Nova Southeastern University, where she wrote a dissertation on multicultural education. She majored in Spanish literature at Hunter College, where she earned her MA.
Pena was born and raised in New York City, but her family is from the Dominican Republic. Her love of languages led her to study French, Italian and Latin. She taught Latin to High School students for several years before beginning her tenure at Brooklyn Tech, where she teaches Spanish.
Pena believes the World Languages department teaches more than just foreign tongues. "My favorite courses are all World Language classes that provide training in speaking, writing, listening, and readings skills and that cover concepts such as diversity, globalization, language, and cultural appreciation."
