My students come from an extremely low-income area of Philadelphia. These students need educated teachers that will be able to teach them while also dealing with the personal issues these students bring to school, which are trauma, hunger, and family separation. These students need a teacher that will not give up on them and strive for more tanning to better equip them with tools and skills to deal with students that come a struggling background. These students deserve the best!
Please help me become a more informed teacher by funding crucial professional development courses. These courses will help me to instruct and manage low income students, most of which are students of trauma. I want to ensure that I am giving these students the best chance for a quality education and these course will provide me with the skills and tools to provide to them.
The only way that I can afford these classes are through donors like you.
These courses will not be reimbursed by my school district nor can I apply for financial aid, so I am depending on your generous donation to make this opportunity possible. Thank you so much for your consideration.
