Deniece Kemp's College Fund

Hello! My name is Deniece, and I'm a single mom and preschool TA, looking to go back to school to finish my BES, and then ultimately getting my masters and teaching certification in the Teach In 12 program at UMSL. For the past 9 years, I have been working as support staff for Confluence Charter Schools, but it has always been my goal to become a certified teacher.

 I’m extremely excited to finish my degree and move forward, however, I was denied any financial aid. It is my hope, that I will be able to raise the funds for this 2018/2019 school year. I am currently set to begin classes tomorrow! Donating will not only aid in me accomplishing this goal, but it will also prove to have a larger payoff, as I fulfill my purpose in changing the lives of my students. Some of my colleagues also give testimony to the positive impact your contribution will make...

"Deniece has a special way of connecting with her students, and advocating for them as students and as individuals! She appreciates their diversity and creativity and supports that in each student to build them academically!"
Kristoffer Quint,  Academic Instructional Coach

"Ms. Deniece Kemp is already an incredible educator and asset to South City Academy.  In her current role as a Pre-K teaching assistant she has shown her ability to manage a classroom, nurture and educate children, and build relationships with both parents and students.  Unlike many new teachers who often struggle in their first year as a classroom teacher, there is not a doubt in my mind that Ms. Kemp would make an immediate positive impact in her students’ lives and demonstrate teaching skills on the level of a veteran teacher.  Helping Ms. Kemp to become an elementary classroom teacher is not only something I’d like to do as her friend and colleague, but also the right thing to do to positively affect the lives of children."
Rob Greenhaw,  ESOL Coordinator

"Ms. Kemp is already making strong impacts on students across Confluence Academy. The connections she makes with children as well as the love for learning that she instills is remarkable. I have had the pleasure of interacting with Ms. Kemp as well as students she has taught and the positive influences she makes on them and their love for her is obvious. She would make an amazing classroom teacher and would, undoubtedly, create an environment where students would feel loved, safe and truly enjoy coming to school. I would be honored to help Ms. Kemp as she works to earn her degree in education."
Brandi Greenhaw, Preschool Teacher

"Kemp is an amazing human being! She is 100% reliable. She's a team player that knows how to take the lead when needed. Kids love her and she loves kids. Even though she is not yet a certified teacher, she is one of the best teachers I’ve ever seen in action…SHE DESERVES IT!"
Ronnie Banks, Physical Education Teacher

"Deniece Kemp is a beautiful soul that has an amazing talent of bonding with children. She has an innate ability to connect with multiple personalities and ignite an interest in learning. Beautiful people, like Deniece, help our youth flourish. Her patience, creativity and nurturing kindness are a necessity and blessing for future students."
Kimberly Holmes, Pre-K Teacher

Your generosity will not only be changing my life, and the lives of my two sons, but it will also impact the lives of children and families who I will ultimately have the pleasure of partnering with to make sure every student I encounter is successful.

I appreciate and thank you in advance!
