Our story

Kathy Small was a lifelong educator in the San Jose area, where she was born and raised. After many years teaching preschool, she returned to her alma mater (San Jose State) in the late 1980s to earn her multi-subject teaching credential, one night class at a time, and ultimately finished in 1994. She spent another 25 years teaching kindergarten through second grade, including 10 years with the San Jose Unified School District at Williams Elementary School. Even after retiring from teaching full time, she continued to substitute and work part time until the COVID-19 pandemic. She passed away in 2023 and is dearly missed, but her influence continues to be felt through her family, friends, colleagues, and former students.

Our goal

The goal of this fundraiser is to honor Kathy and her legacy by giving scholarships to students who are pursuing a degree or credential in education. We are seeking to raise a minimum of $500 annually to help fund a scholarship award for one student each fall.
