Ruthie's Classroom

Hello, family and friends! 

Following graduation from UNC next month, I'll be immediately headed to Houston, Texas to teach elementary school in Fort Bend County. Exciting! Scary! Expensive!

Earlier this week I had an unexpected trip to the ER, everything's fine, but the $1000+ copay has created a need for alternative funding ideas for the following:

-Classroom supplies for my first class of students! <3
-Costs of cross-country move
-Security deposit and rent for first month of the school year, pre-paycheck

So here we are! I'm grateful to start my service as a teacher and appreciate any and all help y'all can offer to help me get there.
