With limited funding, classrooms at some charter schools like Gary Comer College Prep are unable to provide students with basic supplies. Frustrated, English teacher Brittany Maddox decided to create a GoFundMe page, where she raised $500 to supply her middle-school class with needed books.
“For me, teaching is about helping students realize their fullest potential,” Maddox said. On National Teacher Appreciation Day, her students took some time to reflect on her impact.
