This fund will be used to help pay down the student loans of a veteran teacher.

I have been a teacher for ten years, and I have loved every moment of it. I decided to become a teacher in my early 30s and went back to school. I have a BS in elementary education and a Masters degree in education. I work very hard all school year to make a connection with each of my students and to help them grow academically and as a person. I work from early morning getting ready for a day of learning and well into the evening finishing up on that day. Once I finish at school I go to my part time job at a local home improvemnt store. I work there to help me to pay the bills that i have. I did not become a teacher to become rich but i had hoped that i would make a living that would allow me the dream of a simple home and the ablity to enjoy my family. I am not able to do that on my current salary with the bills i have. I currently bring home about 2300 a month as a teacher. I have a 1000 dollar morgage payment, a 300 car payment, a 400 student loan payment, 200 a month in utilities, 150 a month in phone and cable and internet, 150 in gas for my car. The rest goes for clothing, food, insurance, medical bills, items for my students. I am not able to do this each month so i do have some growing credit debt. I am asking for your help to reduce my student loans so that I can continue teaching and give my students a teacher whose work energy is focused on them.
