As many of you know, over the past 2 years I have been involved with the Young Professionals Board at Educators 4 Excellence (E4E), a non-profit that works to ensure the voices of classroom teachers are included in policy discussions that affect our students and our classrooms. Each May, E4E extends Teacher Appreciation Week to an entire month long celebration to recognize the incredible work that happens in classrooms every day and the remarkable leadership of their members outside the classroom.
Educators 4 Excellence is an incredibly important cause to me because more than one teacher helped change my life.
In order to help appreciate and support the leadership of the 13,000 teachers across the country with whom E4E works, the Young Professionals Board has decided to throw a culminating spring fundraiser on June 18th, 2014. I would love for you to be there!
During the fundraiser you will have the opportunity to meet with some of E4E’s teacher leaders, learn more about how E4E is working to solve some of the most pressing issues in education, and enjoy cocktails and light appetizers. It will be an inspiring night! Here are the details:
E4E’s Young Professionals Board Spring Fundraiser

Show your support for teacher leaders who are working hard to ensure the voices of classroom teachers are included in policy decisions that affect their classrooms and their profession. During the fundraiser you will have the opportunity to meet with some of E4E’s teacher leaders, learn more about how E4E is working to solve some of the most pressing issues in public education, and enjoy a two hour open bar and light appetizers.
**If you cannot attend the event, you can still make a donation at any amount of your choosing.
My goal is to raise $3,000.00. Every ticket purchase/donation will help support teachers across the country.
Thanks so much for your support!
