Our support of this month’s Donor’s Choose project will help a group of 2nd grade students make these educational memories.

I am thrilled to introduce you to Miss Jasuta and her 2nd grade class in Decatur, GA.  Miss Jasuta is special, not only because she is an exceptional Teach for America teacher, but because she is a former student of mine.  read more »
