2nd Grade Love: In Julie's Memory

Julie Yoffie was a wonderful, exquisite person and an extremely dedicated second grade teacher. To celebrate her life and love of teaching, I am setting up this campaign to support second grade teachers around the country. The below list includes second grade teachers who have posted projects to be funded for their classrooms on Donors Choose (a nonprofit organization that allows individuals to donate directly to public school classroom projects). The money that is raised will be distributed to the second grade teachers listed below!

As a community, we can support second grade classrooms around the country in Julie's memory. All money raised will be sent to these campaigns through Donors Choose. Every dollar is meaningful and honors our beautiful friend/colleague/family member, Julie. 

Second graders are in a special age where they have open imaginations and love to learn and explore. Join me in giving second graders the tools they need to keep dreaming and discovering.
