I spent a chunk of my adult life working with kids, from the group home setting to being a Para and after school program leader to now being a teacher in special education. I have always had the heart and passion for wanting to help children. I love my job and grateful I can help change and impact the lives of my students for the better.

What will the funds be used for

I can get necessary items that help my students in their learning journeys. Many items are expensive and I’m only allotted $150 a year for my classroom budget, necessary things in my room like Velcro, card stock, laminating sheets and sheet protectors use that budget and are not cheap. I try to buy as much of the things we need on my own but it does get expensive. I would like to be able to get more sensory friendly items on my room like light filters or a colored printer so my students’ visual cards don’t have to be printed in black and white.
