How to Enter
This giveaway has concluded. Visit our Teacher Funding Opportunities page to learn more about current and upcoming educator funding opportunities from AdoptAClassroom.org.
Step 1: Check If Your Bestie Has An Active AdoptAClassroom.org Classroom Page
In order to win our giveaway, both you and the teacher you’re nominating must have active classroom pages with AdoptAClassroom.org. You can search our database of teachers with active, public-facing classroom pages here. You will need both teachers’ classroom page links when you submit your giveaway entry.
Is your teacher bestie not on AdoptAClassroom.org? No problem! Help them easily sign up by copying and pasting the below email:
Hey! I entered a drawing for us both to win $1,000 of classroom supplies on AdoptAClassroom.org, but you need to have an active classroom page for us to win. It only takes a few minutes to register and set up your classroom page. They even have step-by-step instructions here.
If you want to enter the giveaway too, we’ll have double the chances of winning. Check it out here. You’ll need to sign by June 28, 2023 so we can win!
Step 2: Tell Us About Your Teacher Bestie With A Video or Story
We want to hear why your teacher bestie makes you want to continue learning and growing as a teacher. You might consider the following questions while brainstorming:
- What are your teacher bestie’s unique talents and attributes?
- How does your teacher bestie contribute to your school community?
- What is an example of a time that your teacher bestie went above and beyond for a student or fellow educator?
- How does your relationship with your teacher bestie support you in being a great teacher?
- How would winning $1,000 of school supplies each with AdoptAClassroom.org make a difference in your classrooms?
You can tell us their story in one of two ways: with a short written response and photo or with a short video. You can find more information and examples for both below.
Short Written Response & Photo
In a couple of paragraphs, tell us about how your ‘teacher bestie’ inspires you to keep learning and growing as a teacher. Please also include a photo related to your written response. It can be of your teacher bestie, a group shot including both of you or even photos of your classrooms. Feel free to be creative!
I would like to nominate Ms. Douglas! She is a high school SPED Resource teacher for students with high social and emotional needs. Her classroom is a warm, inviting space where students can voice their feelings, joke, or hang out. She is also a hub of knowledge and collaborates daily with fellow SPED teachers and other staff in our school community to best support students.
Ms. Douglas goes above and beyond by individualizing lessons, supporting students through crises, and going out of her way to connect with students’ families to support them in and outside of school. She also brings as much of herself as possible to her classroom and teaching, which is difficult in a school that has very few teachers of color.
Ms. Douglas is a mentor and teacher bestie who inspires me with her humor, realness, and advocacy. Her strategies in setting long-term academic and SEL goals for her students and helping them achieve scaffolded milestones has had an impact on the way I work with students now as well!
Winning $1,000 of school supplies with AdoptAClassroom.org would help us deepen our SEL supports for students during a time when school-wide mental health needs are continuing to increase. Thank you for considering us and our students! – Sarah B.
In a short video (3 minutes or less) show us what makes your teacher bestie unique and inspiring. You can find tips for creating a great video here.

HOW TO ENTER:
Submit a written response and photo or a video explaining why another teacher inspires you through this form. Both teachers must have active AdoptAClassroom.org Classroom Pages from June 28 – July 28, 2023 to win. Limit one entry per nominating teacher.
