Hey everyone! As some of you know, but some may not, I started back to college at Minnesota State after over eight years of being out of school. It was scary and intimidating, but one of the best things I have ever done for myself. I am in the Early Childhood Education program working toward getting my teaching degree. The daycare that I have been working at for the past 3 and a half years is my life. I've cared for every child since they were born and think of them as my own. Last year and this year I was receiving financial aid, and was able to use that to pay for my tuition and books. However, some things have changed, and I will no longer be receiving financial aid for my last 11 classes to finally finish. I do not make enough to pay both my bills and tuition, so I am in need of some help. This is one of the most exciting and rewarding things I have ever done, and I can't give up now when I am so close to achieving one of my biggest life goals. Please help me cross this finish line to be better equipped and knowledgable to make a difference in children's lives. And thank you to everyone who has loved me, encouraged me, and believed in me along the way!
