Margarita Tovar was back at Dogan within two weeks to help students and their families recover and even deal with immigration issues at times.
HOUSTON — Dogan Elementary in Houston’s Fifth Ward has yet to welcome back to students to campus. But that doesn’t mean they’re not fully engaged.
“I can proudly say all of our scholars have technology at home, and they’re being able to enjoy and learn virtually, safely,” said principal Margarita Tovar.
Tovar and her team recruited partners like Payless to supplement what HISD provided.
And now all of the school’s more than 600 students have learning devices and WiFi hotspots.
Making sure kids are connected also means going door-to-door, on occasion, in order to pay personal visits.
