CLEF provides a variety of support to schools and students: scholarships, additional school programs (like a Health & Wellness Coordinator, special education services and Title 1 funding support), curriculum standards and technology assistance.
Along with student supports, we also provide professional development for teachers, principals, and now marketing and admissions professionals. CLEF’s Andrea Bateman, Director of Marketing and Enrollment at St. Philip Lutheran School and Bethesda International Academy, participates in several marketing network and information groups, which allows her to share and learn with those in similar positions nationwide.
Recently, after her first time participating in one such meeting, Andrea was asked for an interview to feature her ideas in future sessions! Based out of Washington D.C., the founder of Easy School Marketing’s Power Hour was excited to hear about Andrea’s work at St. Philip — work which has paid real dividends since she started there 18 months ago. Andrea serves in the same role at Bethesda International Academy, which also benefits a great deal from her creativity and experience.
Thanks to the generosity of CLEF donors, Andrea is able to continue her fine work at these wonderful schools, which minister to children and families on the north side of Chicago!
