Teachers saved my life. Being a poor, mixed race girl growing up in an abusive home then foster care I was destined to be a statistic. Teachers interrupted my trajectory by standing beside me in the fire of my chaotic life. They believed and invested in me, and encouraged me to look beyond 'I can't' to 'I can, and I damn well will!'
Today I'm teacher, Literacy Advisor and motivational speaker running my own business with a my vision of no child leaving school without the ability to read, write and spell. I share how teachers who exchange hope for expectation change lives can make a huge difference. See http://bit.ly/21h0GPY for more. Thank you!
