Nominate a Teacher to go to the Playoffs
My foundation, Blanket Coverage, is near and dear to my heart. Our cause is focused on the students but great teachers are the backbone to their success. Great teachers impact, drive and never give up on their students, even if the student loses his or her way.
I want current students reading this to nominate a teacher that has changed your life for the better, I know there are plenty out there. Our goal is to not let these amazing teachers go unnoticed. Without them, where would we be today?
Nominate that teacher in the form below. I am picking a story that best represents the causes Blanket Coverage stands for and sending that teacher to Saturday’s playoff game. This is just a small way of saying thank you to those teachers that truly care about teaching and guiding our youth.
I look forward to hearing these stories and I know I will be inspired.
On Saturday, January 10 Tahoma High School’s We the People team won a hard fought, extremely intense state competition. Their work ethic has been incredible and their performance, articulately applying constitutional principles, was exceptional. They will be representing our state and the Tahoma School District at We the People Nationals in Washington, D.C. the end of April.
Please celebrate Tahoma’s constitutional warriors: Abigail Atchison, Lauren Baek, Grace Barnes, Coleman Blakely, Cecelia Cadenhead, Christopher Darcy, Jacob Davies, Brock DenHerder, MacKenzie Dress, Amy Folkerts, Renée Hancock, Alex Harr, Desirae Hayes-Vitor, Zachary Jones, Joanne Kunze, Katrina May, Dominic Minniti, Sydney Murrey, Madeleine Musard, Caroline Pedro, Jayaram Ravi, Megan Simmons, Lucille Tibbetts, Nadiya Upegui, Samuel Verkruyse, Sophie Wulfing
