I have spent the last two years in elementary school classrooms all over Rhode Island. During my time in the classroom I have worked with many intelligent and inspiring students. I am currently finishing my student teaching at an urban elementary school. My 25 fourth graders are the ones who motivate me every day to be the best teacher I can be.
This October I will be running the Newport Half Marathon. This will be my first time running 13.1 miles. I wanted to run for a reason besides checking off a goal on my list. One day while teaching my 4th graders I realized that my 25 students are the ones who encompass much of my life; and that I should be running for them. Please help me raise money for The College Crusade of RI to reduce high school drop out rates and increase educational and career success for low-income urban youth. College Crusade will be able to provide higher education to many students with your help. Help me make an impact on the lives of our children.
