More than ever before, teachers deserve our thanks. Teachers are essential workers who are meeting the educational needs of our nations’ children. Teachers are doing amazing work everyday, from finding fresh ways to better engage students online to building new lesson plans that keep kids excited about math and science.
This all comes at a high price. Teachers spend an average of $745 of their own money on supplies for their students each year. The pandemic has only increased spending for many teachers as school budgets have been cut and students’ needs have become more complex.
“My spending has doubled since the pandemic started!” said Denise, a second grade teacher. “Students cannot share anything… you have to buy individual sets of everything. You need to spend a lot of money on cleaning supplies, etc.”
“I’ve purchased supplies that I never thought I would have to purchase, not only to take care of my own physical self but also to support students,” said Maria, a school social worker.
The support from Skechers’ stores is coming just in time. Only 29% of teachers said they received a thank you in the last week for their hard work. Funds raised from the Skechers Register Round Up will support high-needs teachers with AdoptAClassroom.org. Together, we can thank teachers by helping them get the supplies their students need.
Visit your local Skechers store and donate as part of a register roundup May 1-8, 2021.
