Hi!! Thank you so much for considering me for a donation. I cannot tell you how much it means to me.
I am a 4th grade teacher and I absolutely love my job. Every single day I am with my students is an opportunity to make a positive impact on their lives. It’s an honor to be a part of such a rewarding profession.
A little about me....
Like many other people, I headed to college straight out of high school without a clue about what I wanted to do with my life. I spent thousands of dollars each semester, trying to find my calling. Finally, I graduated with a degree in Spanish. Although I was proud that I had graduated, I was still unsure of what I wanted to do now that I had a degree.
I worked many years as a nanny and a waitress, barely making ends meet. Then, my mom suggested I apply for a preschool teaching position. I ended up landing the job and completely fell in live with teaching! Seeing the joy in those little faces when they learned something new was indescribable. Yay! I had found my calling!
One problem. In order to be a certified teacher, I needed to go back to college. So I did. I earned a masters degree in elementary education and was hired this year!
My student loans have now reached almost $50,000 and I make $35,000 a year. My monthly loan payment is nearly half of my monthly salary. This is why I have created this campaign. Even the smallest donation from you would make a difference.
My hope is that one day, I will have paid these loans off and I can come back to this website and help others who are in my same situation.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read my story.
