Thinking back to when I was in school, there were many teachers who inspired me. Teachers who took the time to teach me beyond just the books in front of us, teachers who were passionate about teaching and teachers who cared about their students.
There was the biology teacher whose creative approach to teaching helped me learn to think beyond black and white. And the English teacher who recognized that I was good at writing, but not at grammar, and pushed me to be more. The teacher who showed me how to work together with others to shine. There many teachers who helped me find myself, my talents and my passions.
Now I am a mom, and my daughters are the ones who will be inspired by teachers. Everyday my Kindergartener comes home with stories about what she learned, and I am excited for the future possibilities. Will she meet a teacher who uncovers her hidden talent? What will she be inspired to do?
There are countless possibilities through education, and this December FedEx One is helping three schools open up the doors of possibility by granting three schools the money they need to fund their dream projects. And you can help. FedEx has narrowed down the candidates to five schools and is asking you to vote for your favorite. The first place winner will receive a $25,000 grant and the second and third place winners will receive $10,000 and $5,000 grants respectively.
Voting is easy, just watch the five short YouTube videos and vote for your favorite.
PLUS when you vote and EVERY time you use the hashtag #CountlessPossiblities on Twitter and Facebook, FedEx One will donate $1 to Teach America up to $300,000.
In fact, I am going to make it easy for you. Just click the retweet button below and $1 more will be donated to Teach America. Let’s support the teachers who do so much for our children together.
