Introducing the Teachers’ Lounge: Grants, Contests, and a Chance at $25 for Your Classroom!

At we want to be more than just a website you use to fund your classroom. We want to be a community that supports you in all different facets of your teaching challenges.

You may remember “Teachers2Teachers,” our place for you to ask questions and give answers for a chance to win $25. The Teachers’ Lounge will encompass this same function, but also give you a heads-up about grant-opportunities, contents, and other teacher resources beyond

We hope you’ll enjoy this monthly blog feature. Comment with a question you’d like to ask, or an opportunity you’d like to share with the community!
