I am so excited to be selected as a LEAD Fellow for the 2016-17 cohort representing the State of Louisiana. This is an amazing advocacy and professional practice improvement program that believes that regardless of zip code EVERY child should have access and opportunity to have an amazing education.
Over the next few months I will be elevating my voice as an educator and advocate for all students. I am hoping that the work conducted and the lobbying done will make improvements for both students and professional educators through the state.

I am so glad that I learned about Donors Choose early in my teaching career. I have seen far too many teachers funding their classrooms with the crumbs left over from their paychecks. Why aren't you using the amazing support and donor base at Donors Choose to support you and your kids. How do you think I was able to get a recording studio, photography studio, computer lab, and amazing art supplies to modernize my classroom teaching? ANSWER: Posting requests on Donors Choose is the only answer.
