This is only my first year teaching in Katy ISD, but what I have seen so far has been incredible. The faculty are amazing, the students want to learn, and the culture created by Katy ISD is just contagious. Supporting all of this behind the scenes is the Katy ISD Education Foundation. This group has given hundreds of thousands of dollars to deserving teachers throughout the district in an effort to enrich teaching, inspire learning, and enhance opportunities for students enrolled in Katy ISD.
Personally, I have been running for most of my life, but having a reason to run makes it so much more empowering. This year I have had the opportunity to help out with my school's cross country team. Seeing these student athletes wake up every day and come to school before 6 am by choice just to better themselves has been a humbling experience. I want to run this race to be an example for all of my students and I want to raise money to give them the best educational experience that they can possibly have. Small changes really can have a BIG IMPACT.
So, I invite you to give what you can so that our Katy ISD kids can truly see that their community, family, friends, teachers, and all are here for them and are willing to do whatever it takes to see them succeed.
