Supporting Support Staff In OKlahoma

My name is Katie Booker. I teach at Union Public Schools in Tulsa, Ok.
I have been involved with education in Oklahoma since 1997. I have roots in several districts in the Tulsa area.

Oklahoma schools depend on support staff to function. While the teacher walkout is happening they are not receiving pay. Part of our fight is for a pay raise for support staff. In the mean time it’s difficult to sustain basic needs when going without pay. This account will help with financial needs such as groceries, utilities, rent, and fuel. Any help is appreciated!I am starting this drive because of a conversation I had last night with a support staff member. He works 2 jobs and at times has had 3. He shows up with a smile everyday and blesses the special needs students he supports. He told me he was $299 short to make rent this month. I know there are others like him.

I have a direct connection to the following districts in our area: Union, Jenks, Sperry, Skiatook, Sequoyah, Owasso, Chelsea, and Broken Arrow. I will coordinate the distribution of gift cards for those that have need. I will not limit it to those districts but I will be in contact with people in those districts to poll needs of support staff. I am happy to share the love to support staff in any district.
I am stopping by today to pay rent for a support staff member of JMS. He needed right at $300 to finish paying for April.
