NOW, please don't think that I have found the secret to urban education and that we that all is sunshine and roses...not the case. BUT, compared to the beginning of the year, night and day is the difference here, for sure.
This rejuvenation has caused me to take a look at some of the projects that I left simmering on the back of the stove. Luckily, I was not gone TOO long and had everything boil over, but there is a time crunch here, for sure.
Last fall, I wrote about an amazing website that links teachers in need and donors - around the world - DonorsChoose.org. They are amazing! Through the love and generosity of my friends and family, near and far, I was able to get 2 FULL CLASS sets of graphic novels to use with our Holocaust Unit. Through that project, Drawn and Quarterly also donated a class set of books - amazingly without question! And I was moved, literally to the point of tears.

Until I started looking for ideas...and an email came saying that AT&T had generously offered to adopt my program and pay for HALF of my project! How AWESOME is that THAT! Thanks AT&T!!!!!
Now, I have FOUR DAYS left to find the remaining $127! Many of you have given generously and I am eternally grateful! I really, truly am! Please don't feel guilted to donate again, that is not my point. HOWEVER, if you could share this site, my DonorsChoose.org page on social media, I will be oh so thankful! Even a dollar or two can make this happen!
Thank you in advance. SHARE AWAY, MY FRIENDS!!!
An AMAZING FireWife took care of this, less than 30 minutes after I posted it! NEVER doubt the power of Fire Wives! Thank you, my friend!! <3 <3
