Teachers are paid so very little for the work they do. They work long hours (many hours go into planning/grading before and after school or on weekends), they get very few breaks throughout the day, and especially in under-funded areas, teachers are spending their own money on classroom supplies to support their students.
When I heard that Office Depot was partnering with teachers, I wanted to jump on board to share and celebrate their work. This video, #teacherschangelives, had me feeling emotional:
If you have been a teacher or are someone who wants to support teachers, you can be a part of this amazing campaign. In some areas, you can even support a teacher in your own community!
How to Donate to a Teacher
- Go to Teachers Change Lives website (http://clvr.li/1emq4KF)
- Click on the teal "Donate to a Teacher" box on the Teachers Change Lives website (http://clvr.li/1emq4KF), which will take you to the Adopt-A-Classroom website
- Follow the corresponding steps from there
Whether you are a teacher, know a teacher, have kids in school, or simply went to school yourself (I think that just about covers EVERYONE!), remember the value of education: it's priceless. But some of these schools and teachers could use an extra boost.
And even if you can't donate, remember to thank a teacher or do something to encourage them. They truly are world-changers.
