Teacher w/New Job Can't Afford Move
I have a great new teaching gig waiting for me in Aurora, Colorado, teaching Latin to 4th thru 8th graders at the Vanguard Classical School. My last hurdle? Actually getting to Colorado and getting through my first six weeks.
What I want most in my life is to support my family and provide a home for us all—we have had to live apart since we lost our farm in 2014. I want to do it as a Latin teacher, because I love kids, I love Latin, and I love teaching kids to love Latin.
But I have to move on July 20th, and we don’t have the money to get me there, much less cover expenses while awaiting my first paycheck on August 31st!
I will be grateful for any amount you share. Your faith in me and what I will accomplish with my students in Colorado will mean the world to me.
$2,902 by July 20th, and another $1,630 by early August (details at bottom). So, we are a total of $4,532 short, and the clock is ticking down to July 20th!!
If we can raise the money to get to Colorado, and to get through August, we will be self-supporting from September on, our lives turned around completely! Your assistance will allow me to support and reunite my family, and spread the love of Latin.
Any amount you may be willing and able to contribute will be received with fervent prayer and deep gratitude, and we will pay the kindness forward as soon as we have our feet under us. Please also pass this URL along to others. Thanks, and God bless!
