Support teacher who was attacked!

Hi, my name is Jean Cannon, and I am raising funds for a Public School Teacher Tiwana Turner who was attacked by a student. Tiwana Turner is an English Language Arts educator, and she has taught in public education for the past 27 years. On the morning of Thursday, January 26, 2023, Ms. Turner was covering another class in lieu of her co-worker’s absence. When Ms. Turner attempted to redirect the off-task behavior of one of the students, the student proceeded to physically attack her. During the attack, Ms. Turner was thrown to the ground and sustained multiple injuries. She is currently hospitalized with knee and leg injuries, and is unable to walk. She will not be returning to work anytime soon, and she will require extensive rehabilitation and therapy.

Yesterday, her life was suddenly altered, and now she will require several mobility accommodations while she recovers. This does not include the financial strain from fees associated with her hospitalization. While she has helped so many students and families during her 27 years in education, she is now in need of help and assistance. Any donation is greatly appreciated and will go directly towards her rehabilitation and hospitalization fees.
