LaTosha-The Gifted Teacher
Organized by: LaTosha Fradieu
Where I am from (Kansas, but moved to Stone Mountain, Georgia 4 years ago), you go to school based on what the job market is there. I tried several Majors, but now that I have found one that is universal & worthy, I'm maxed out on my Student Loans & was told a couple of years ago there was a 6 year max on Pell Grants now. So I am stuck...and almost gave up, but I recently found a program with the Dekalb County School District called TAPP (Teacher Academy for Preparation & Pedagogy Program, that I would like to enter, but it will cost me a total of $3,000! $2,625 for the program, $75 to pay for my mandatory tests and $300 for my starting supplies for my classroom. (While I am going through this program, I will be working as a Teacher, so I will need to purchase starting supplies.) I moved my family here so we can experience & live a better life...to raise our standards & live our dreams and I know this is my chance to fulfill my dream of working with children, by making a positive impact on their education and lives!
