Letter: Help! Your votes are needed to help a very special young lady

By on April 19, 2012

I have entered a special needs student of mine in a contest. Kiley has cerebral palsy and currently suffers from daily seizures, which makes life very difficult for her at times. The winner of the contest receives a three-day trip to Morgan’s Wonderland, which is an adaptive amusement park. This would be an experience of a lifetime for Kiley.

The contest is sponsored by PCI Education, Dell, Morgan’s Wonderland and an online community called WeAreTeachers. The winner is picked through online voting.

So if you have a moment, we’d really appreciate you going online and voting for Kiley. You can vote one time per e-mail address; vote from every e-mail address you have. Have your friends and family vote; the more votes she has the better chance she has to win. It would really mean a lot to us to have your vote and support. So pay it forward and just go to www.weareteachers.com/morgans-wonderland, and follow the directions. Search by student—Kiley—or teacher—Poterek. The contest runs through April 24.
