Utah: Rebecca Travis #40dollars

What does $40 mean to you?
I teach junior high English. Forty dollars a paycheck means I get to buy current, exciting, young adult books for my students. My students often do not have the funds to buy books for themselves. But they are motivated to read when new books are available for them right in my classroom. Through forty dollars a paycheck I am giving kids the invaluable gift of literacy and a love of reading and learning.
