While being a teacher has never been easy, it also has never been this hard.
During our April Distance Learning Twitter Chat, we asked teachers if their out-of-pocket spending for their job had stayed the same or even increased. Overwhelmingly, teachers told us they are spending more.
We want to help. In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, we will be randomly drawing 180 teacher pages for a $100 classroom adoption to spend on the supplies they need right now.
To enter, there are four quick & easy steps:
We invite any PreK-12 public, private, or charter school teacher to enter by creating or updating their classroom profile page by May 10, 2020. To be eligible, classroom pages must be public and include the following:
- In the “Description” section of your page, add a specific and unique story about your classroom. This can be an anonymous story about a specific student, a story about a personal struggle or success, or something that highlights how your classroom or students have been impacted by COVID-19.
- Add the hashtag “#DistanceLearning2020” in your Description section so we know you are applying for this donation.
- In the “How will you spend your funds?” section, tell us what you currently need for your classroom, and list the specific items you will purchase, if known. You are not obligated to purchase the specific items on your list. We know your classroom needs are always changing.
- Include a high-quality photo of yourself or a photo of your classroom (read our tips here). To upload a photo, click Update My Information on the Teacher Dashboard, and click the photo icon.
If you are having trouble creating or updating your classroom page, please read this blog post before contacting us.
