“I believe that helping create equal opportunity for all children and caring for the physical world in which we live are important parts of being human. Teachers’ Teammates offers a program that targets both beliefs. Educational resources go to those in need and our landfills stay a bit smaller as discarded supplies go to good use in classrooms. It is my pleasure to be involved in this organization.”
