Lorayne Medina

January 2020 Winner

Lorayne is a senior studying Interdisciplinary Studies (K-8) at Western Governors University.

Now, Lorayne wants to be like the supportive, attentive, and inclusive teachers she had growing up. She is about to be the first college graduate in her family, and plans to cater her teaching to different learning styles and cultures, so that her students can feel as comfortable and welcome as she did in elementary school.

I always knew I wanted to be a teacher, and the journey to achieving my dream has not been an easy one. I come from an immigrant family that has always worked very hard to make ends meet, and this scholarship means becoming the very first college graduate in my family.

Aline Pham

Summer 2019 Winner

Aline Pham is the very first winner of the From Classroom to Classroom Scholarship! She will be entering the University of California - Irvine as a freshman this year. Her interest in education started at a young age and grew with her experience as a tutor and a Model UN Instructor’s Aide. Her lifelong commitment to education will give her a head start in her career as a teacher.

“I would like to thank Education.com for this very generous scholarship, which will help me tremendously as an Education Sciences Major at UC Irvine. Although my dream has always been to become a teacher, aspiring educators do not always receive enough social or financial support to make their dreams a reality. Society seldom encourages children to pursue teaching, so I am incredibly thankful to this committee for playing that role. I have found a community that will support me as I step into my first classroom. To my fellow future teachers, I look forward to changing the world with you — one student at a time!”
