Years of experience
Students this year
I began teaching preschool overseas in Germany on a military base in 2012. It was then that I fell in love with the occupation and wanted to make a difference in the lives of the children that I had the opportunity to be surrounded by each day. You see, I had a really rough childhood. I was surrounded by drugs, alcohol, and abuse. All of these things could have detrimentally affected my life, but I decided to use my experiences to make sure that the students who walk through my classroom doors have someone they can depend on. Someone who will keep them safe and fight for not only their education, but also for their well being. I’ve created a safe space where my students WANT to learn. I pray that as my teaching journey continues, my ability to provide this space also continues.
How will funding help my students?
Funding will help me build my classroom library and students’ access to important books covering topics self worth, community, and celebration of cultural diversity. I am also focusing on women in stem careers to encourage my girls to strive for something MORE. On top of building my library, funding will also purchase basic supplies that my students and their families are unable to afford themselves (pencils, erasers, paper, folders, etc).
