"Every kid is one caring adult away from being a success story - Josh Shipp"
Years of experience
Students this year
Growing up with my special needs brother inspired me to become a teacher. While attending college I worked a full time job as an instructional aide at an alternative behavior school for students who weren't successful in a traditional public school classroom. That is when my passion to be a general education teacher who believes all children are capable of success! I am now completing my 5th year teaching and I have cherish each student sho steps into my classroom. I believe my role as a teacher doesn't stop at teaching my students to read write, and solve math. I believe I teaching my students life skills is just as valuable.
How will funding help my students?
I am a 3rd grade teacher in Arizona. Most of my students come to me from a low income family. Parents often struggle to buy school supplies. Materials my classroom uses frequently runs out quickly and it is comes down to spending money out of my own pocket to resupply materials.
Number of students who will be impacted: 25
