For realsies.

I’ve been hired as a 7th Grade Math Teacher at H.W. Solomon Middle School in Greenville, MS. Solomon is where TFA had placed me originally, so I’m pretty happy that I get to stay there. Now the real work begins — unit planning, lesson planning, classroom decorating, calling parents. This week is “Teacher Academy” in my district so we’re going through all of the district and school policies.

In the meantime, I need your help! I’m trying to raise money for my classroom for some basic supplies. It seems like pencils and paper would be easy to come by, but the classrooms are virtually empty and many students do not have the means to purchase supplies themselves. Your donation will directly impact my students. Not to mention you will get some pretty great pictures and thank you notes. When you make a donation, make sure to use the promo code INSPIRE and DonorsChoose.org will match your donation, dollar for dollar.

Thanks for your help:
