It's not always being a single parent, I can't get help from their father because he had past away years ago. But I do know he would be proud of our kids just as much as I am.

This is a new venture for my family. We have only been homeschooling for the past year as a whole. I have always been very driven to make sure they are well-learned and well-behaved children. They have never disappointed me so I would love the opportunity to win something nice for them. With our budget, we have to use as many free resources as I can find and get very creative. Thanks for voting!
I love my job, my school and the families I work with. I work with K-8th grade kidos for before and afterschool at ER Martin School. This is such an awesome opportunity. Please vote for me - $10,000 will make a huge impact in supporting our student's learning. Thanks for your votes!! :-)
I absolutely see the need and positive impact creative learning spaces have on our student's learning and achievement. I’ve removed the teacher desk, creating spaces led by student choice and involving the students in the design process- taking the time to actually ask students how they learn best. I would love opportunity to purchase quality products.
We are a blended family with seven children. Five of which are home schooled. Winning this contest would help us out greatly in our journey for a fun and rounded education for our children.

I am a catholic school teacher teaching 4th and 5th grade science and social studies. I feel so blessed each day I go into work and have a wonderful group of students. It will be extremely helpful to provide the students with a classroom learning environment they deserve. I can integrate more center work, hands on learning activities and broaden my classroom library.
I am thrilled to join the dual immersion staff at Jamestown Elementary School. This is a new program that is the first of it's kind in Tuolumne County.

I work at Frederick Douglass Elementary in Overtown. I would like to win this prize to give my students a space to forget about their troubles at home. A place that is well decorated and clean. A place where everything is taken care for them. A class and community that serves as their safe haven.
We would love to update the collection but there is little to no funding and we rely mostly on donations. Currently our library has many outdated materials - some books are even from the 60s and 70s.
Jackson Street School is an amazing, multicultural, elementary school and we want all of our students to have access to the materials they deserve. Please vote for us!
We are a new homeschooling family. If we won I would use the curriculum to teach my child and many others.

Thank you for every vote,
Our school library that serves 330 students is simply a former classroom. We need additional shelves and some comfortable seating to make the space more inviting to students. Being a small, rural K-8 school the closest book store is an hour away creating a welcoming space is important to helping students engage in reading for pleasure.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for voting for us! We are a very rural Title 1 school in Missouri and appreciate your vote! Our funding is scarce and our school is located in a hamlet so community partners are hard to find as well, so every little thing helps!
I am a teacher who loves to make learning fun with movement! Please help me fund my movement classroom/gym to excite and educate my wonderful children. I also do STEM Street activities for after school programs. And I have added items for my special needs children. I would love your vote! Thank You, Cindy Mae
My name is Glenda Cates and I entered this contest to win some new Homeschooling items for my son. Charlie is 8 and was in public school until Oct of last year. When we had to remove him as he was being Bullied. And tried to kill himself.
So I have been buying a little bit here and there. But my husband was laid off on Monday. And was also in the Hospital.
Help! We need new furniture. We are always tripping over our big bulky desk. They are too big and old for the classroom. The furniture is not conducive for the way students learn and teachers teach in the 21st Century. We need a new environment!
I teach in an urban district in the Ohio rust belt. Our funding is being cut more every year, which makes it tight to acquire the necessary supplies for the school year.

I am not a mother by nature as i have no kids of my own, but my kids at my school own me body, spirit and soul. They are such little oaks of righteousness and soak up every encouragement, instruction and question with such passion and zeal. They deserve your votes--not me, but them because i believe in them,who they are and who they can be--help me build that bridge

My son was born with a cleft palate in 2010. When John was 3 months old his father died. He has gone through 7 surgeries in his life. Due to his cleft palate I knew there would be some speech issues so I started to show my son baby bumble bee and baby Einstein videos when he was a baby. This was the start of my Homeschooling John. John is now 6 and very inquisitive.
We work with some AMAZING middle school students. These hardworking individuals are very smart, but they process information differently than most people; my students deal with Learning Disabilities. An arsenal of teaching materials, incorporating several modalities, is crucial for their SUCCESS. YOU CAN HELP PROVIDE THE TOOLS WE NEED WITH YOUR VOTE! Thank you.
I homeschool two of my children ages 11 and 7. We moved to Honduras in 2007 and in 2011 began our homeschool journey. Having some funds to fill in the gaps we experience living abroad would be so wonderful! I would like to add things to our school to enhance their learning. Specifically for science, technology and hands on learning.
We are just starting out on this Homeschool adventure (we've been at it for just over a year), and we have a long way to go. I absolutely love teaching these girls at home, but the curriculum, materials and supplies can get pretty expensive. It would be terrific to win some of these great resources to help me out. You can vote every day to increase my chances of winning. Thanks!

It would be awesome for my class to win, therefore, your VOTE will be greatly appreciated.

I have always been active in arts in education, I also homeschool my daughter and have done the same for relatives. For years I worked in different schools teaching arts in ed. I learned that bringing in things they could touch, see, grow, build, and studying various cultures creates interest. This funding would give me the resources to do this at home and in school programs in Statesville, NC.
I have worked hard to give my children ages 5-13 the best schooling experience I can, unfortunately I can not afford all the fabulous things I wish I could. we use the basic's and improvise the rest. this would be a blessing of unmeasurable proportions.

I am a parent of a 1st grader and 4th grader. Their teachers could use anything from new desks, computers, product for the kids. Their school is a small public school, with many of lower income families. The teachers end up spending a lot of their own income on their students. These teachers have a ton of heart and soul! They would be Thrilled to have some extra money to spend on their students!
I work as a teaching assistant at East Syracuse Minoa high school. Our district has an amazing opportunity for some of our students. Four of the autistic students type through an iPad to use their voice. Being an assistive typer (one of five) at the high school is an amazing experience. The use of the iPad to express their true thoughts is remarkable. Thank you for this amazing opportunity.
We are just finishing our first year of homeschooling and it was the best decision we ever made for our son. He struggled in school with learning disabilities, anxiety and just falling though the cracks. Now I can teach him in the ways that he learns best - with a hands-on approach. It has been amazing to see how far he has come in the first year and we look forward to the future!

Foundation Christian Academy exists to fully prepare children to by disciples of Jesus Christ and to glorify God.

I am a homeschool mom of 4. My kids are 10,9,7 and 6. They are a lot of fun and a handful. We homeschool from a travel trailer as we work to correct our credit and buy our first home. We love the adventure and are having fun while we are on this adventure. I want new curriculum to build more options into their curriculum. Next year we will be learning between grades 1=6.
My students are wonderful. They are full of energy and are very motivated to learn.
They love to explore and discover new things every day. They learn best through hands-on activities. All of them have different capacities and needs, therefore they need different kind of materials to explore and learn.
Funding this materials in my school is very difficult.
Please vote for my classroom to win. My students are the most deserving group of children; they challenge me and themselves everyday and I am proud to stand before them as their teacher. If we win, we will use the funds to upgrade our classroom computer, purchase new books, folders, binders, pencils, and notebook paper to further our educational endeavors. Thanks in advance for your support!

I teach Spanish classes with little to no Spanish books. Languages are not considered an academic class however many college still need students to take 1-2 years of a language in high school. I am looking for small readers at least 1 class set.
I don't think there has been a better day to date than when I accepted my first position as a First Grade Teacher at Binks Forest Elementary. Voting for me is voting for my students.

We are a homeschool family about to wrap up our second year! My son has really flourished! He has been asking to learn Spanish and how to play the piano. Winning this contest would allow us to get online Spanish lessons as well as a piano lesson curriculum. And enough Math and Science curriculum to last us a few years - which would be a relief to have taken care of!
Teachers need to get students excited about learning again, and re- interested in learning. Having a classroom filled with new products that incorporate learning, and gets the students involved in their own learning will help achieve this process.
I am a special education teacher in San Jose. I have wonderful middle school students who have skills as low as 1st grade and as high as grade level, and English language learners who are just learning English . I would love to win these great classroom supplies and materials. My students would be so happy that they had new things that were current! Thank you!
Our school is a non-profit school for low income students. Our students struggle in big classroom so most of them attends our school as part of a government funded program.

My goal is to have plenty of resources so that the other families in our SuperKids group can utilize the resources too. (I wouldn't post a group picture without prior consent from all the moms.) Thank you so much for your time & consideration.
My goal for my students is to get all of the necessary materials they need to succeed in our classroom and also for support in the student’s homes. Students need to have access to educational materials in their homes to extend their learning and provide a rich learning atmosphere that connects home and school. Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration!
I am Visual Arts Educator in NY. We are a high needs district. Unfortunately due to yearly tight budgets it can be difficult to supply my scholars with the necessary tools to complete various projects. My students have amazing talent that can be overlooked because we do not have the tools or materials needed.
My son Patrick and I Danielle on a field trip (class picture). We home school on weekends, till this year is over. He wants to try home schooling next year. He loves the weekend learning we do.

Our classroom is in a rural school from a farming community. We do not have buses so everyone walks. We are a single district and do not have the resources that bigger districts can afford. Our families are hard working down to earth people. As a second grade we do all we can to allow them the things they do not have the privilege of at home.
Our school Lady of Grace Preschool is a community-serving institution, one of the few in the area that combines a strong Christian foundation with high-caliber academics. We count on our community for support; we are not a state-funded institution. We would be delighted to earn the support of others to continue to expand our academic offerings for many years to come.
I run a Reggio-inspired early childhood development center in Park Ridge, New Jersey called The Valley School. I have always loved using a hands-on approach in the classroom, allowing for the children and teachers to experience things together and learn at the same time.
I live and teach school in a small town and it is 75 mile to get to the nearest teacher supply store. I would love an updated classroom full of fun, educational toys for my kids to play and learn with!
Hi! I am a homeschool mom of two precious boys. We are a one income family and it would be wonderful to be able to win some great educational resources for our homeschool. I also run a homeschool group in my community and it would be wonderful to share these resources with the other families by staring a lending library.
We are in our 3rd year of homeschooling. In TX we receive no money or support from our local/zoned school district. Homeschooling has been a wonderful journey for us. We currently share resources and if we win we will definitely be sharing! Any additional resources we can win will be beneficial!!!
I'm graduating in may with my Elementry Education Degree. I'm way excited to be a teacher. I have a job lined up for the fall. I love teaching. Helping the students learn and expand their knowledge is an amazing thing. If I win this it would help me set up my classroom for my future students. It would give them and me an enviroment we both want to learn in.
These products would help my students tremendously. I work in a low income school where students are given free lunch. Many of my students have hardships in their lives and school is their only safe place. Please vote to help my classroom.
Hello! I am In home care provider and a mom.
I do love to win this because this will truly help me and my kids to learn and have fun.
The resources that we will receive will truly help us a lot.
I am a teacher in a very small school (2 teachers in each level) and we are trying to make a difference in every child's life. Since we do not have art or music, I would love to be able to get these supplies so that we can use them in the classroom. I would also like to be able to add a few more math and literacy items to our toolbox.
My classroom isn't typical --my kids climb trees, stomp in puddles, play with worms, and take apart clocks as a practical way to explore their world. That is the life of a homeschooler, and if I win this contest, a portion of the winnings will go to the Westman Homeschool Connection for their lending library and the rest towards classroom/play area upgrades.
This year I moved from 5th grade to 2nd grade and LOVE it! It has, however, been a challenge to change grade levels. I'm working on building up my 2nd grade resources and would love your support in this endeavor! Thank you for supporting my passion for teaching!

Thanks so much and God bless!
Being a full time mom is a great experience I homeschool all five of my children it's a handful but Being more involved moves us closer it's just exciting being able to enter into a contest to win supplies because things can be a bit expensive and being on a budget sometimes limit what can be brought it's a great opportunity and anything for my babies
I have been teaching first grade for 6 years. I teach in a high poverty school. Many of my students have the opportunities that they do because of what I can provide them in the classroom. I would love to have even more options for them to read and manipulatives for them to explore in the classroom. We appreciate all of your help!
What a fantastic opportunity! Obviously, winning would be so great. Most all homeschool families are single income. With that said, I wish everyone the best of luck! Thank you so much Educents, FreshGrade, S&S World Wide for such a generous giveaway.
I am a home school mama on a very tight budget. Since my husband had a stroke in June of last year everything as been very tight. My kids do attend a virtual school called connections academy. But on the side to help them I do my own homeschooling. There is still alot I need to make my homeschooling room a dream come true.
Thank you for viewing our wish list. We are preparing a preschool program for children with Autism, behavioral needs and disabilities, as well as low income families. Winning these items would support our program stocking the classroom and being able to reduce the cost to our families.
As a homeschooling family with six children we are always looking to upgrade our curriculum. Winning this giveaway would allow me the ability to fast track my children's education -- even my teens would be thrilled with the curriculum I selected in our wishlist!
