Emergency Fund for Teacher

I am a teacher who currently works with underprivileged and disabled youth. I love what I do and see the difference my job makes on a daily basis in the lives of young students as they grow in education and life skills. One of the opportunities I provide my students is Equine Therapy. There is incredible benefit to working with horses; this encourages leadership, confidence, relationship skills and much more. Right now, I am working with two girls with extreme special needs, and have taken a major pay cut in order to work with their family's budget. However, this has left me struggling with the burden of student loan debt on top of my monthly bills. My goal is to be able to raise enough funds to pay off a chunk of debt so that I can continue to purse my dream of helping these students achieve their full potential, without the personal financial burden. Ideally, I'd like the money raised by the New Year so that we can look forward to a promising second half of the school year. With the funds raised here, I will pay off the some of the student loan and other financial debt I have so that I can continue to pursue this career without constant financial difficulty. The support of donors will bring my students one step closer to a successful second half of the school year, as well as allow me to commit another full year working with them in 2021. Your donation will provide homeschool students with disabilities the chance to have a teacher who is dedicated to their growth and development, not only in the classroom, but in the World.
