Last spring St. Anne's School of Annapolis brought the founder of Pencils of Promise, Adam Braun, to speak to us.  As a teacher, I was immediately taken by PoP's mission to bring education to communities that lacked resources to educate their children.  As a teacher and coach of teachers, I know the value and necessity of training teachers with both technical skills and soft skills, as well as the support teachers need for sustainability in their field.  As a writer, I was struck by the vulnerability, honesty, and insights Adam shared.  As a human being, I knew joining their tribe would be part of my work, as I've been graced with so many experiences, challenges, mentors, and joys during my teaching career.  Now it is my turn to garner support for teachers and students who need materials, training and schools in order  to care for and educate their children.

Pencils of Promise works with communities across the globe to build schools and create programs that provide education opportunities for children, no matter where they were born, or what resources they have. Pencils of Promise has broken ground on over 200 schools throughout Ghana, Guatemala, and Laos.

Education is a cause that's truly important to me. It is a gift many of us take for granted and PoP's work reminds me that it is a gift to be shared.   I'm excited to join the Pencils of Promise movement that empowers lives around the world by increasing access to quality education for children in the developing world.

Please help me reach my fundraising goal by donating today. Throughout the school year, I'll be sharing additional ways you can help me reach my goal of training five teachers and helping to build a school.
 
Thank you for your support. Everyone has promise. Education unlocks it.
