West Springfield Teacher Wins DonorsChoose Award

A West Springfield teacher who goes above and beyond to provide for her elementary school students got a huge surprise recently. Crowdfunding site DonorsChoose.org and Good Morning America gifted $15,000 each to two local public schools—all while on live television. Jami Witherell—who teaches fifth grade in West Springfield—joined Carolee McGrath to talk about the $30,000 gift and her mission to help student excel in the classroom.
