I began teaching as a substitute a year ago. In January of this year I got a call from my principal on a Friday night. She asked if I could start as a first grade teacher on the following Monday. Their teacher had quit on them. I was nervous but took the challenge! After a very tough 5 months with those students, I was hired back for this coming school year. I am prepared to give this incoming class my very best and part of that means I need your help.

What will funds be used for

I will use all of the funding to meet physical needs of my students. We are located in a diverse, low income community. Many times, my students come to school hungry and I spend my money on snacks to feed them between breakfast and lunch and again when they leave school for the day. I would also like to provide students in the most need with shoes that fit and coats that are appropriate for snowy weather.
