Quotes from the Field

“Since the age of 5 my dream has always been to be a teacher. I started that journey when I 
graduated high school and gave it up to get married. Now I am a single mom who is showing my own children how to set goals and achieve them. That dreams can come true if you work hard. I wouldn't be able to do that without this scholarship. I know that I am going to achieve my dream someday because of this scholarship. I, also, know that degree it is going to help me grow in my 
early childhood career even more. There will be so many more jobs options and doors open. Not only will it open those doors but it will forever make me a better teacher.” T.E.A.C.H. NEBRASKA
