Teachers are AMAZING! Most teachers teach because they want to make a difference in a child’s life. Teachers don’t get paid what they are worth, but there is a way we can show our support during Teacher Appreciation Month. Did you know a lot of teachers pay for supplies and other classroom items out of their own money? That is so frustrating from a parents view. We have a couple of exciting things for our readers on how they can help TEACHERS!
Teacher Appreciation Month
May is all about the TEACHERS! When my kids were in elementary school, we would hold a week-long celebration. Teachers deserve all the support and appreciation all year long but so thankful they have a month that we can shower them with goodies. SONIC is celebrating Teacher Appreciation Month through its Limeades for Learning philanthropic initiative. Starting Wednesday, May 8, SONIC is launching a $1 million donation match with DonorsChoose.org to help public school teachers get the essential supplies they need to inspire their students.

More About DonorsChoose.Org
DonorsChoose.Org has been helping teachers and of course the KIDS for a long time. They provide an opportunity for people (not just parents) help teachers fund certain projects they want to do with their students. It can be for books, computers, a field trip or anything they feel will assist in their teaching. Every year I pick a project from my kid’s school and DONATE after I do that I always get such a warm thank you from the teachers plus progress reports on the project. Supporting my kid’s school is a must in my book because not only at home it takes a tribe, but it takes a tribe at school too. We want our kids to excel and get the best darn education they can get so why not help the situation.
I can’t say enough about DonorsChoose.org– you need to take that step to help.
