Love for Amanda and Daniella

As most people have heard by now, Wanda Tirado lost her life on Wednesday, June 20 after a tragic boating accident. Wanda was a Math and Science teacher at St. Mary School in Waterbury, CT and a dedicated volunteer at St. Mary Magdalen in Oakville, CT where her daughters, Amanda (13) and Daniella (4) attended school.  Wanda loved to dance, loved to teach and loved the summer. However, she loved nothing more than being a mom to Amanda and Daniella. 

Wanda worked tirelessly as a teacher and physical therapist to provide her daughters with the best education possible, with the opportunity to dance and the opportunity to do all the things they love. Now, it is Wanda’s time to rest and OUR time to step up. 

Please consider making a donation to help Amanda and Daniella continue to do all the things they love doing.

I am Jonathan DeRosa. I am a school Principal in Waterbury, CT. Wanda Tirado was a friend of mine and a colleague. I was her Principal. The funds raised here will be used for Wanda's daughters. Half of the proceeds will go to her daughter Amanda and half will go to her daughter Daniella. The funds will primarily be used for academics and living expenses.
