Winner 4: Stephanie Commyn at Webster Elementary
Stephanie teaches a special education class of children with autism and while it is most days challenging, she approaches each day with passion, humor, dedication and love. She strives to make a creative space and enjoyable learning experience for each child because they each learn at different levels, and winning the $1,000 would provide additional educational and recreational supplies to help her teach them to grow into individuals who can feel accomplished and live a more independent, productive life.
Week 3 winner: Mrs. Laura Short at Most Blessed Sacrament in Toledo
My wife never stops for her students. She is always looking for new was to reach them and make them feel comfortable, happy, and safe in the classroom. She is always spending her own money to improve her classroom. For instance, she just painted her entire classroom herself and is now trying to save money to buy comfortable seating. This 1000 would help her finish making her classroom the friendly learning environment she wants for her students.
Week 2 winner: Mrs. Phillips at Westview Elementary in Warren
Mrs. Phillips is my sister in law and she work for a school with very low income. She spends most of her own money to give supplies to her class room. We as a family always help her out and pick stuff up here and there. My family also tries to get backpacks for the kids who do not have any. Last year she had a student who was living out of his car with his mom and brother. Mrs. Phillips did her best to make sure his day at school was loving and fun. I hear the stories she tells us about her students home lives and my heart just brakes. So for them to walk into a class room with new books to read to take home and to have brand new supplies they would love this. Every bit helps and we try.
Week 1 winner: Mrs. Wellman from Kent Hills Elementary
Congrats to Mrs. Wellman from Kent Hills Elementary on winning Mojo's 5k Cash For Your Class this week
Rachel has bought classroom supplies and materials for her class for 12 years. The district she works does not give money for supplies and her students do not come with supplies to school because of poverty. She has always bought their school supplies so they were able to enjoy the full classroom experience. She could use that money to buy some items for her room that have been too pricey to help students reach their academic goals.
