Hello Teachers!. Wow. I'm glad to see a group of this nature. I am a certified teacher in Missouri; currently looking for a full-time position. I substitute in Illinois and Missouri; plus I ride.

Money, Great idea to post links to grant opportunities. I applied for and received a grant from Dollar General in the amount of $5,000.00 last year for our school library. If anyone is interested in applying, the link is below. Feel free to contact me if I can help with topic ideas, etc. The deadline for this year's grant opportunity is May 15, 2011.

Here's a hint: If the grant provider has the option of an 'online" application or mail-in application, use the mail-in application and pay the fifteen bucks for overnight delivery with signature confirmation. I overnighted the Dollar General grant application out the day before the deadline with signature confirmation and I truly believe that helped put my application at the top of the pile. Good luck and take care out there. Tom

I am an educator for Rescue Riders and Accident Scene Management. We teach riders what to do in emergency situations. Our level of education can be taught to a 5th grade level learner. We have several Junior rescue Riders as well with the youngest being 12. Its important to teach our youthe early about emergency response and the "right" way to contact EMS. Our children are being raised in a technical society with computers and cell phones. but educating them early, they too can raise awareness about motorcyles and safety and to STOP distracted drivers.

I hope that now that school is out for most of our children, parents, grandparents,neighbors, pastors, and any other concerned adults will encourage our children to go the Library and read over the summer. Parents should have your child read a book a week and do a book report. That will help them not loose all the hard work that teachers have tried to do during the school year. We can also take our children to the the musuems--and ask some other child along too. Seniors can offer children some odd jobs over the summer--let them wash your car, clean out your basement, mow your lawn. You can get a group of neighborhood kids and take them to the park for a game of PIGGY, softball or volleyball. Them treat them to an ice cream cone or cold pop. You can teach a child a new acitvity like gardening or how to change the oil on a car. We can help keep kids involved in safe and useful activites over the summer so they will be less likely to get in trouble.

I have been a teacher for 10 years in the urban core. It trully does take a village to raise a child. These children are coming to us with the best that they have and unfortunately it is not much. No matter how hard it is, we as educators cannot give up on them for in most cases we are their last hope.

Working with teenagers I can honestly say these kids are fragile. It's a different time and generation. The social pressures facing them are enormous. Many are not equipped to deal with the discipline and accountability issues facing them. I am extremely sympathetic to these kids. I enjoy watching them succeed. I guess that is why I always wanted to work with kids.

Ride for CHANGE-Ride for HOPE supporting PUSH Excel

Now is the time to get involved, as these are hard times for many organizations, yet the cost to provide programs are increasing as contributions decrease. Therefore, this year, we, the World of Soul Motorcycle Community have made a covenant to Sponsor-A-Student. For every one thousand dollars rose, one student can partake in this pivotal opportunity. A contribution in this regard answers YES to education and NO to incarceration by providing the outlet to new horizons for our youth.

All contributions will be tabulated and presented to PUSH Excel via oversized check on behalf of the World of Soul Motorcycle Community. In lieu of Paypal, a contribution via certified funds (Cashier's Check, Money Order, Bank Check) is encouraged. Make your contribution payable to: PUSH Excel. In the event your club or motorcycle related organization will step forward with a substantial contribution, please email or fax me a copy of the check you will be submitting as your pledge so that I will have an accurate account of what amount to indicate on the oversized check. Please submit your organization's pledge by March 20th. Preferably, contributions are to be hand delivered or mailed to the address below postmarked by March 20th.

We will be disconnecting the Paypal link on March 20th. We suggest only smaller donations be made via Paypal for convenience only. So please consider where applicable the Paypal link here; to make a contribution.

Please remember that together all things are possible. We can do this...Together we can make a difference.
