Help Ms Dawn go to school!
Organized by: Dawn Wickert
Help me finish my education, so I can inspire students to do the same! I have been a single mom for twenty years, working multiple jobs to make sure my daughter had every opportunity to have a better life. Now that she is in college (!) it's time for me to finish college and turn my passion and experience into my career, as a high school teacher. As a paraeducator, teachers are always encouraging me to finish school and teach, but the costs associated with getting started are way out of reach, even working full time in the school district as a paraeducator and cleaning houses on the side. So, I'm taking my colleagues advices and a leap of faith and asking for $2000 to get started! Financial aid will help once I get started, but there are ongoing fees for things such as testing, student teaching and licensing, all things to come in the future! However, once I get to my goal of $2000, I can begin! I have worked with students over the last 15 years from all walks life and from many different circumstances, and my journey has only fueled my passion to make a difference in the lives of my students. Thank you for your support!!!
