Hey, I'm Amanda

I have struggled with my student loan and living expenses in California my whole life. Recently my family lost their home in a wildfire and this made everything harder, as you can imagine. But, it has taught me the difficulties my students face so early in life.

What will the funds be used for

I want to create an open classroom. Many of my students come from broken homes. They sleep on floors and in closets. I want my classroom to feel like a home to them. I want to buy cozy chairs for them to sit in and read. For the same reason I want to take them on more field trips. So they learn that the world is much bigger then the neighborhood they live in.
