BENEFITING: Achievement Center for Children and Families
EVENT DATE: Aug 29, 2015
On 8/29, I am turning 29, so for my golden birthday I want to follow the Golden Rule, "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets" (Matthew 7, 12). I am dedicating this birthday to the cause of educational equity. I have dedicated the past 26 of my life to learning and the last 6 to teaching at public middle schools. This kind of work is important to me because I want to serve the mind, the body and the spirit of my students and their families in order to achieve lasting transformative change in their communities. As educator Paulo freire said, "Education does not change the world. Education transforms people. People change the world.” Please join me in helping these young people and their communities make the world a better place. My goal is to raise at least $829.00 by August 29th. Please help me help others and make my birthday wish come true!
