I am passionate about educational equity. Every child deserves a quality education. This will be my sixth year teaching. I have taught first, fourth, and Kindergarten. 80 percent of my students are considered economically disadvantaged and 60 percent are English Language Learners! I love sharing my passion for literacy with my students each day!

What will the funds be used for

I work at Title 1 school in Kansas City, Kansas. I am making a switch from fourth grade to kindergarten. Many of my students do not have access to quality literature at home. I want my classroom to be a place where they can find rich text and fall in love with books. I need books and shelving to go with them!
