I have just started homeschooling my 13 year old son Harvey, who after a term at high school was feeling under pressure and completely overwhelmed at the pace of school. He has dyspraxia and speech delay which means the messages from the brain to his hands i.e. motor skills are very slow. Harvey's mental wellbeing and happiness is paramount to me. We would ABSOLUTELY LOVE it if we won. Thanksx

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 teach Graphic Design, Photography and other arts to high school students, who are taking an art class for the first time in their lives. I would like my class to be more comprehensive & have enough supplies for all my students.
I'm an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I teach students age 3-6 years of age.

I am a homeschool momma to 4 amazing boys. Three of them that I have the privilege to teach each day! Life is busy, exciting, challenging and I wouldn't change this experience for anything! Each of our boys learns in his own unique way. One thing I have noticed is that learning resources are expensive, this would give our boys education a huge boost in the years to come. :)
I am a School Speech Therapist who works with many special needs students. Sensory and organization is key with many of them. I strive to give my students the best that I can to build up and encourage them to go beyond any expectation. Over the year, items get very used and new items are always in need to continue our learning and growing.
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.

students with exceptionalities for PPS. I strive to make all my kids be the best that they can be, guiding them into their future. I would love to have a sink/br in my classroom so we can work on hygiene. A small kitchen area that we can cook our weekly recipes. Grow their own plants then place in our outdoor garden and use with our recipes. I want to expand their learning.
I'm working as a behavior therapist and a teacher to kids with developmental delays, ASD and ADHD and I believe that toys, when used in an interactive, positive and fun way, are among the best tools in helping all children grow intellectually, socially and emotionally. SO please help me help these extraordinary students to become the empowered individuals they're ought to be by sending a vote. :)
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!
My dream classroom is a place where children feel safe and encourages them to learn by using their imagination and curiosity to unravel their full potential. Having these items in my classroom will give them the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities that are engaging, entertaining and meaningful while learning at the same time. This is my idea of a "Dream Classroom"
I am starting out in my first year teaching, and I want to provide my students with many manipulatives to help them during the learning process. However, I know I can't fund it on my own. Thus, I hope I can be selected to win funding for my dream classroom.
Education today is ever evolving and changing, but that does not mean that all subject matter is to be shoved to the side. I am of the school of thought that in order to teach a child, you must teach the whole child. You have to spark curiosity and excitement all while giving them the mandatory curriculum. My wishlist fulfills the dream!
My desire is to pass on rich, sensory ed. tools & experiences like those that teachers provided me. If we win, tools & resources, would go to enrich the ed. of my kids & materials would be also passed on to others in the community for their students. Educents has amazing resources to benefit both home & public school students & tools will be available for both! Thank you!
I’m a 1st grade teacher with a goal to set-up a Maker Space at my K-6 school. Our students love to design, create, and learn through hands-on activities.

I work in a school who has a wonderful and very deserving group of children. Coupled with the children we have a tireless administration and faculty and staff who go over and above to get the money to fund the needs of the school. We are moving toward a technological society and we are using antiquated equipment that
does not allow the students to reach their optimal potential.
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.

I am finishing up my 3rd of teaching SPED students and each year am gaining so much more confidence and insight! Most of my students need hands on activities to help them with their Reading and Math. It is hard to find materials that will activate their minds and allow them to grow and learn!!
Teaching children with Autism has been such a rewarding career. The students have taught me how to view each child as an individual and not just a student. I continue to grow as an educator and a person each day. Remember: Autism is different NOT less!

To be honest, I would be happy if I could get enough votes for $500 just to provide for my homeschool classroom.

Please take a second to vote for me so that I can continue to enrich the lives of others. Teaching requires the most education for the least amount of pay.

It seems like public schools will forever struggle to provide basic text and tools to support the needs of all students.

We have to step outside of the box to find tools and resources to learn!

Mrs Stoever teaches 2nd grade in a district that is severely underfunded. She has 25 kids in her class working with books that are outdated, computers that hardly work and limited classroom supplies. She continues to keep a positive attitude and deserves to be recognized for all she does for our kids.
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.

My school is a high poverty school with 95% of the students on free and reduced lunches. Parents can't afford supplies, therefore I buy them. This leaves me little money for curriculum. Please support our students.
3 years ago a dream of providing a Liberal Arts education for the young became a reality. The St. Therese Classical Academy was born. It has been a beautiful journey. I have grown as an educator and have learned that there is no limit to what a student can learn. As an instructor of Lit, Math, Music , Latin, Logic, Italian, I realize there is also no limit to what we as teachers can impart!
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!

I homeschool my 10 year old special needs daughter. We were blessed to find a wonderful group of like minded homeschool moms with amazing kids. 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.
Hello! I am a first year teacher in a special education classroom with 7 darling little students. I have limited supplies within my classroom and a lot of my current supplies belong to another teacher who will take them back at the end of the school year. I need a collection of small, reproducible items to large, reusable items. Please help me be prepared to educate my sweet kids!
I am teaching boys with the age range of 7 to 9. I would love to offer science, history, and music to them. We don't have the money at our school to provide fun and interactive learning materials. Your vote would mean a lot to me and the boys that I teach.
Hello! I teach 1st grade at a wonderful charter school in Phoenix Arizona which specializes in the arts. I plan on using the materials toward my everyday teaching and center activities. Also, the addition of 2nd grade material will go toward differentiation in my teaching. I strive for my kids to be well rounded and respectful individuals.
I would love for my students to win this, we are a Title 1 school and we never have nice and new educational items for our kids. I have all mismatched tables and chairs. I use milk crates as storage containers. They never have enough supplies. This would be an opportunity of a lifetime.
I teach 2nd grade in Japan, so I am always thinking of ways to help my students learn more English. My students really enjoy science, so most of my wish list is science based. I am also a mom to two young boys. If I won my wish list I would be able to bless my students and my boys with fun and engaging resources to fuel their love of science.
Thank you for looking, please vote for me!
I'm a first year kindergarten teacher at a title one school in North Carolina. My school consists of a majority of English Language Learners.

We are a special needs Christian School who does not receive Federal Funding. The school is tuition free for the families. We are ran strictly by fundraising and private donations.

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.

I love teaching Pre-Kindergarten, but it can get very expensive! Teaching children how to care for things takes a toll on the classroom items. The money would be spent on books, learning toys, and classroom supplies that help the students have fun while learning. Thank you for your vote!
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.

Please vote for me so that my kids with varying disabilities can get the sensory room that they deserve.

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 not a certified teacher, but a teacher nonetheless. I have homeschooled my children since they have came into this world. My motto is "it's never too early to learn." Winning this would make my children and I so happy. (especially them!!!) VOTE FOR US!

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!

Our school uses STEM lessons and activities to build social skills and Autism Awareness. Our class invites other classrooms to our room to share in learning about science, technology, engineering and math.
I have three homeschoolers ranging from preschool to 2nd grade. We are constantly looking for more hands-on, interactive ways to learn new things.
This would provide us with some of the resources to give our girls a great start!
