Oklahoma teacher facing eviction

My sister Kelley teaches middle school on the southside in OKC.  She has a masters in multicultural education and has devoted her life to teaching.  She spends her own money on supplies for the kids and puts them first.  Years of making ends meet while making sure her kids have what they need to learn have taken their toll.  She has taken out payday loans just to make it from paycheck to paycheck and is now caught up in a hopeless cycle.  We all know Oklahoma teachers are underpaid and lack the resources to give students a proper academic foundation, especially in poor neighborhoods.  Its embarrasing to put this all out there, but my sister gave me permission to do it.  She is facing eviction if she does not pay $1400.00 by next Friday, March 30th. If you are frustrated with our state’s refusal to pay teachers a living wage and to adequately fund our schools, please consider helping this one teacher.  She has dedicated 20 years to her profession, still carries $50,000 in student loans, and could really use the help.  Thanks
