My name is Alma Sokoya. I’m a mother of two amazing adults and I’ve been married to a wonderful man for 34 years. I grew up in a two parent household and I have 12 siblings including a twin brother. My parents were the working poor. We struggled financially but my parents valued education and did whatever they had to to make sure we attended school regularly. I always loved school and knew that one day I would become an educator. Teaching is my life. I love the students and I love knowing that every day I’m making a difference in the life of someone else. Every day I see the future and know that long after I’m gone I will still be a part of that future living through my students. This is my calling and I am so glad I answered.

“The future starts now! “”

What will the funds be used for

I work in an underserved community. Every day is a struggle for my students to get to school. On a daily basis my students have to navigate issues from home and community just to get to school. As a result they don’t have the uniforms or supplies they need to feel and be productive. This funding will help me supply the basic needs that so many of my students need. Thanks!
