“The teach scholarship has been an amazing opportunity for our teachers. We’ve had multiple teachers express their interest in pursuing higher education for early childhood however due to the low wages they are paid they are unable to afford it. So, with this tuition assistance scholarship it makes it affordable for them. It is also empowering. They come back from class though they work full time and go to school part time, which is their really big workload, they come back class renovated, refreshed and passionate and ready to use the concepts they learned within their classroom.” — Catherine Greene
