When Margie was young, she watched public service announcements aimed at recruiting educators, often portraying teachers as heroes with capes and superpowers. These moved her to become a teacher herself. Margie’s love for teaching inspires Barancik Foundation to heavily invest in our school district.
Outside of family, teachers have the greatest influence on a child’s academic performance and future success. They can make all the difference in the world. That’s why we want to keep good teachers and attract new ones. Our Emerging Educators program has helped dozens of professionals in other fields enter the classroom ready to take on new challenges.
