Why I am a Champion for this Cause

When Barbara Murapa, Jacob Yale and I decided to join forces last year to form the BJM SpellCasters, I thought, why not? I can spell…

And also I thought about my personal relationship with IPEI Teacher Grants, which I have been (am again this year!) a part of, having worked with teachers at BJM and SHE in wonderful projects of reading, creating, and publishing poetry, great work supported by IPEI Teacher Grants.

Our other team members, Barbara and Jacob are wonderful, magical members of the community and I am so proud of how we represent the community of learners at BJM.

But more than anything, the experience was exhilarating!  The atmosphere of the Bee itself is carnivalesque, a shot of much needed human made sunshine–the kind of bright light that comes from laughter, joy, celebration, silliness, and above all, generosity.  So even if you’re not able to donate to our campaign today, I hope you mark your calendars to be in attendance  Sunday, March 1, 2015 2:00 p.m.
Ithaca High School Wellness Center Gym for the 17th Annual IPEI Adult Spelling Bee!
