If I win my pupils will benefit a lot since they come from a rural set up that need resource back up for their education materials. Our school was blown off by a storm maybe this may help them get back their torn and rained books or blown off roofs.
I'm an ESL teacher for new immigrant students at a Title 1 school in Oklahoma. My dream classroom is a traveling summer school that would go to the neighborhoods where our students live so we can continue teaching English during the summer. The resources we would receive through this contest would benefit these eager students. Please vote for me.
I am trying to change the "seating" in my classroom! I am going to ALTERNATIVE seating! I would love to have a STANDING area where kids could stand at a TALL TABLE to do their work. My "WISH LIST" includes pillows, benches with soft pillow tops, and a rug for ALL of us to sit on! Stability balls and Wobble Chairs are next!
I WOULD LOVE TO SHARE THIS WITH MY STUDENTS!
I would love your vote to help me win my dream classroom! I would love to add more technology to my classroom. I would also love to add more tools to my literacy centers to be able to further build the students reading skills as well as their comprehension. The possibilities would be endless and it would greatly help influence my students love of learning!
I am a Special Education Educator and I am working on my second year of teaching. As the years go by teacher's collect many things that they keep and share in their classrooms. Since I am just starting out there is not a lot of collection that has happened yet. My student's this year I am so proud of, they have come along way from where they started out at for the most part.
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.
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'm a first grade teacher. It is imperative for our students to have access to technology. Many times 15-20 devices are shared between multiple classrooms and they are not available. I'd like to equip my classroom with electronic devices so that my students will always have access to them . Please vote to give my students the best chance to be ready for their future education. Thank you!
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!
Please vote for me to win this and more cool stuff for my classroom. Since I have moved to Kindergarten I definitely need more resources for my students and 10,000 will go a LONG way. Please pass this along the one with the most votes wins!

Hi! We are a homeschooling family. We are almost done with our second year of homeschooling and we love it! Educents has so many amazing products that we can use in our classroom. Our current goals are to expand our library and focus on art and music. There are so many fun activities and resources that we can add to our homeschool. Please vote and help us win our dream classroom!
I'm here b/c my daughter can't attend public/private school for health reasons. We use as many "free" resources as we can, or I purchase at a discount. My wishlist will get her thru HS. And, It will be a blessing to win. I have read some of the entries. And, I see there are others out there are as deserving as I. So, I challenge all contestants to vote for one another. I will. Will you?
I teach 3rd grade at a Title 1 school in a community that is high poverty. My students deserve to have supplies that will help prepare them for the next level academically and socially. With supplies on my wish lists I will be better equipped to provide engaging and meaningful opportunities for learning. It takes a village to help educate students in and outside the classroom.
HI, we are a family of 9, 2 boys and 5 girls. We (I) have been homeschooling two years. We are a single income household. With several of our kids interested in science and music. Thank you Educents. Thank you to everyone who votes for our family. Also, Thank you to those who are just voting regardless if it's for us. God Bless!!
These are only 2 of the children I work with : My 17 year old son (Yes, this is recent!) and my 9 year old niece. Both are special needs and eager to learn! My niece can not read. She truly needs lots of 1-on-1 and my sister has asked to take her on again. We just need lots of resources to help her learn while having fun.
I am an ECE just starting out my career. My class is full of wonderful children, but there are different needs of the children that we can not always meet, because we do not have the tools. By winning this contest, these deserving children will get new tools to play and learn with. We will also be able to set up a quiet sensory corner. Thank You.
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.
I have been teaching for 34 years! I am asking to move to a Developmental Kindergarten classroom I know I will need a TON of hands-on activities for this group of students, and I can't wait to provide them with a developmentally appropriate learning environment. I thank you for your support of my students and the importance of a developmentally appropriate education for our youngest learners.
Please help me get my feet off the ground as a new teacher and be able to provide my students with the experience they need to be successful both in school and in life. My goal is to help shape productive citizens and make the world a better place one student at a time.
This is my first year homeschooling and I want to do everything that I can to encourage learning and a love of learning! Many of those wonderful things take money money money, and this would be an amazing way to set us up for the next few years of homeschooling!
I'm an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher. I teach students age 3-6 years of age. My kids range in multiple types of disabilities and needs. 75% of my classroom population are below the poverty line. Being able to supply the classroom with materials that encourage their confidence, interests and desire to be engaged will help the grow as learners. Thank you!
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 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 a single income family of 5 with 2 boys who we currently homeschool. Both of our older boys have expressed interest in working with computers when they are older, winning this would allow us to add more STEAM into our daily routine. Thank you for opportunity to win some awesome items for our boys!
Kindly help AL Fekr Khanah STEAM team getting all of those wonderful materials to keep our educational programs at acceptable fees. Why? We aim to help our kids take better education as they missed a lot of wonderful opportunities outside our education system.
We believe that even small drop of water can break large stones by hitting them day by day.
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 home schooled 2 of my other 4 children and they did amazing. I want Patrick to have at lease as great an experience as his brother and sister did. Thank you for your consideration. GOD Bless.
I am a STEM teacher at a Title One school in rural Arizona. Our school is in its first year of a three year transition to becoming a full STEM Academy. We are in need of STEM materials to fill our STEM library so that all of the teachers at our school will have the materials they need to do STEM projects in their classrooms.
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!
Please vote for our classroom. We are part of a collaboration and our classroom is in a child care center. Some of the students are here from 5am to 6pm . They stay not only for pre k but also for before and after.
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
Next year I am moving to being a Science/STEM teacher for 4th grade. We are trying to invoke creativity, collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. By having all of the resources necessary I think we can bring those aspects to life. I thank you in advance for your vote.
I am a dedicated 8th grade social studies teacher who loves this crazy profession! I am committed to creating the next generation of globally conscious citizens and future voters. The students that I have today in social studies class will decide your fate and mine tomorrow!
As homeschoolers, we could all share access to the tools that we don't all have access to. Thank you for a great way to pay it forward in a community that has a shortage of hands on learning items. Homeschool children aren't given state funds like traditional schools and this would be a great way to help those in need in my community.
I am a homeschooling mom! I have 3 kids and we also work with a co-op! To afford us this ability I do not work, we would love to win this contest, because any help we can get educationally, we will take!! Vote for us!! And THANKS SO MUCH if you do!!!
I homeschool both of my daughters. I would love to win this so that we could get any curriculum that we want. There are so many amazing curriculums out there, but many of them are way out of my price range. This money would help for years to come.
I am a special education teacher for grades K-3. We have a tight budget so there is not a lot of room to buy items for my classroom. I would love to have something good and positive to happen this year for myself and my students.
This is our chance to build the Homeschool classroom that we've always wanted and dreamed of that would leave our studies Limitless!
This opportunity would carry all 5 children most of the way through an above average High School education so that our financial resources could be focused on supplemental extracurricular activities!
There would be no limiting their personal curiosity fulfillment!
Hi, I'm Nancy from the youth development center. I work with 2-3 year olds. This is the stage where they are learning the most. They are always on the go and need new and exciting thing to play with and explore.
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.
One wish...an amazing classroom fit for a Pre-K King and Queen. Please take a moment to vote for my classroom. It won't cost you a dime but would mean the world to us. Winning this grant would allow us to have the sensory classroom perfect for children with disabilities.
Mom of 6...teacher to so many beautiful babies!! I am in year 3 of my teaching career. My students and parents are my life! I live in a small, close community with limited resources in my district. Our future depends on today's learners. Vote for me so I can brighten today's young minds!
We have been homeschooling for three years now. This would be such a blessing to our family. We have a very limited budget and don't buy much when it comes to new fun things. So I know how much my children would love to have new fun things to explore. This year we will have three officially doing school. They love to give to others and will give before they ask for something for themselves.
I have been teaching for 21 years. I would love to give my classroom an update. Teaching is my life and brings me so much joy. Touching kids lives every day feels great. Please vote for me!! What a blessing this would be! Thank you for your support!
I am a homeschool mom of 3 children. We homeschool on very limited amount of money. Our classroom at this time is our dining room. We would love to be able to have a separate room for school, with bookshelves, desks, maps, charts etc. As most public & homeschool teachers know books & supplies aren't cheap. This would help our school so much.
We are going into our 4th year of homeschooling. So, in the fall we'll have an 8th, 6th, 4th, & 1st grader. That means 4 different grade levels, personalities, & learning styles. The kids really love math & science and really anything that involves STEM. It would be great to win our wish list to set up our classroom with more STEM curriculum!
Hello everyone!! I am super excited about this opportunity. Giving students a chance to learn through hands on experiences and activities. My classroom is filled with busy minds and hands ready to explore and learn. Im always looking for activities and toys that are developmentally appropriate for the future leaders of america. I look forward to you investing in the future of america.
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. The students who strive each daily to reach their highest potential, the students that know that a good mix of a good education, kindness, and a sense of humor can take you very far.
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.
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!
I homeschool several age groups and grade levels. I have always been fond of using manipulatives for teaching as well as experiments and projects that engage the students. I have some items, but would love to be able to add more items to engage their learning more and to help with organization.
Help me change the mindsets of my students. Vote for my classroom to win supplies. I want to creat a math toolbox for every student at David Ellis Academy West. This toolkit will give each student manipulatives that set them up for success.
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 strive to create a loving, caring and fun learning environment for my Kindergarten kiddos. Please vote for me so my Kindergarten kiddos can be all that they can be and more!
Hi! I am a teacher at a Hutterite Colony where I teach everything from Jr. Kindergarten through Eighth Grade. I have 11 great students who are also English Language Learners. Money is very tight to fund all that is needed to fulfill the best education I can provide. Anything I can win for my students will surely benefit us with a positive outlook toward education. Thank you for voting for US!
These little people are the reason that school has been an amazing journey.
While not every day starts with smiles, we enjoy learning in an atmosphere that builds on our strengths and strengthens our weaknesses.
We have lots of learning before us with our journey in homeschooling just starting.
Help us provide these (and any additional) kiddos with environment filled with what they need!
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!
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. While I would love to just keep buying things for my students to help them learn, the reality is I need my hard earned dollars to support my own kids who are in college. So please vote!
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.
I am homeschooling and raising my granddaughter. She is 4 doing kindergarten work. To win this would be a treasure as it would take care of much of curriculum needed into 1st grade. Thank you for the opportunity.
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
Please vote for my class to receive resources to make learning more fun and engaging for my students who are all struggling. I need lots of resources to meet the needs of my students. I want to teach the way they learn!
Thank you for your consideration in voting for my class! My school is in a low economic are and we do not qualify for Title 1 funds. We also do not have a wealthy population to donate funds to our school. Winning our dream classroom would be a beginning for my students to be on equal footing as their peers in our town/district. Thanks again for your consideration.
I am a caregiver of a severely Disabled Veteran. It was very important for us to homeschool our kids. We now homeschool 2 of our kids and a niece. Soon we may add our nephew also. We are always looking for new books and programs. Please help vote for us so that we can keep the dream of always homeschooling a possibility
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 work at a Title 1 school and my students don't have many real life experiences to relate the content that they are learning to. If I win, I would purchase resources and materials to make their learning more meaningful and easier to relate to.
I am a 6th grade teacher, who has taught grades K-11 and understand the importance of a 21st century classroom. Our students are depending on us, as teachers, to send them into the world prepared for the jobs are awaiting them. Including STEAM, Science, Technology, Art, and Math is the most beneficial skills our students require for high school, college, and the work place.
I love teaching music to children, young and old. I dream to open a classroom for learning music while having fun. The Philippines is a very musical country, and I would like to contribute to raising better Filipinos through early music education.
To be honest, I would be happy if I could get enough votes for $500 just to provide for my homeschool classroom. I would simply love nothing more than to be able to afford multisensory lessons and items to assist me with bringing forth my child's full potential. So, I state kindly, to please vote for me.
I am an art teacher, mother of 2 and wife. I spend so much money every year for my art room. It is expensive, but necessary...don't tell my husband! I have worked was an art teacher and gifted teacher for the past 10 years. I love my job!!! PLEASE help me to win money for my classroom!!!
My students deserve a classroom where they can learn Spanish and have fun doing so. I want my classroom to be a place where students are fired up about learning and who knows, maybe it will be the place where a student discovers his or her own life passion.
Were a military family who have chosen to homeschool since we tend to be on the road a lot. We have 4 children between the ages of 8 and 1 and each of them have their own way of learning. We work hard to make sure our kids get what they need but like so many, this give away would help SO very much with our education.
Hi, my name is Tim and I'm an online ESL (English as a Second Language ) teacher. The majority of my students are from Taiwan and Russia. I will be moving to China this Fall to teacher English there and winning this contest will help me buy items for my students in rural China. Thanks!
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"
Space Coast Early Intervention Center is growing in leaps and bounds. As we open new classrooms we are able to serve more students in our inclusion model classroom, where typically developing children are cared for next to children with a developmental disability. We love our school and we love our kids! Help us to replace and improve our classrooms!
Thank you for your VOTE!
I've been homeschooling for almost 8 years now. Years later our children are thriving! I believe in teaching my children with quality material. I'd love to share the material I win with others in my community who also home school so we all have, & can provide the best education for our children,thank you so much to everyone who votes for us. ☺
I love my job, my school and the families I work with. Unfortunately, our school doesn't have a lot of money to purchase new items for our classrooms. This is such an awesome opportunity. Please vote for me - $10,000 will make a huge impact in supporting our student's learning.
I'm a Home-school mom of two. And although I would love to win and could really use the things I have on my list, please read down through and use your vote to help someone else who needs to win more than I. :)
I am an ESL teacher at Thomasville Middle School. I believe that technology is a tool that can help my ESL students to learn the language as quickly as possible. I am also a believer that reading is the ticket to make your dream come true.
My school, which is located in a small rural community, has been chosen to become a STEM elementary school. As a Science teacher, it excites me but with worries about the lack of materials that I have. Please vote for my classroom and we can ensure that students at SMP will have a great background in math and science.
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 am moving almost 2,000 miles away from my friends and family to teach first grade this August. I know that funding is low in Arizona and want to have as many manipulatives and supplies to help my students learn. I can only put so much of my own money into my room, and having my wishlist granted would help immensely! Thank you for considering voting for my room!
Please vote for our Preschool! We would love to have all the items on our wish list for our class.
I have an amazing group of boys and girls that love to learn and really could use this to help prepare them for their future. Every Child deserves and opportunity to explore and express them self in a fun learning environment. Please vote for my Class room. Thank You.
Dear Friends and family, please take time and vote for me so that I can win materials for my classroom to better enhance my bilingual students learning.
Queridos Amigos y Familia, por favor voten por mi para poder ganar materiales para mi salon para mejorar el aprendizaje de mis estudiantes. Thanks. Gracias.
I work in an urban school district where many students are low-
income and not exposed to good literature and worldly concepts. I would like to expose them to as much hands-on learning as I can to give them a well-rounded education and make learning fun! Winning would surely help!
I will transform our ground floor into the coolest and most equipped homeschool/co-op rooms/after-school program for our community with a library filled with awesome books, DVDs and educational games to lend to the homeschooling families here. With all of these products, we will be able to teach and raise amazing kids who will be always excited and passionate about learning.
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.
MY CLASS IS A FAMILY! :D Teaching in a combined classroom for the first time; 2nd/3rd grade, has been a new challenge for me, but the hardest part is keeping students engaged in independent learning time while I work with other students. With lack of funding, I find myself spending more to make my classroom what I envisioned. My dream is to keep the fun flowing for those independent learners! :)
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!
Vote for me because I LOVE providing exciting, fun, & cutting edge technologies for my music students! Instruments & technology are costly investments, I would love to have financial help so that I can purchase xylophones, glockenspiels, drums, recorders, iPads, SMARTResponse technology, & much more! Please vote for me so my students can have all opportunities to learn!
NHEG promotes literacy for children and adults by offering a range of educational support services.
Please vote for us! If we win this will be used to serve the general public and families from all school backgrounds/beliefs.
I would love to equip my classroom with materials for all my students, regardless of their ability. The materials would be available for use during the day, as well as being able check them out for use at home at night and over the weekend. Thank you for considering my 5th grade class and students!
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!
In this day and age of testing, testing and more testing, I try to squeeze in activities that are developmentally appropriate for my kindergarten friends. I believe that it is so important to create a love of learning at this age. If we can make that happen, then they will be more successful. Help me get the hands on materials that our schools will not purchase for us anymore!!!
I have taught for 28 years and plan on 10 more! Nothing is more rewarding than watching a child learn something new or them being comfortable enough to start calling you "Mommy" without even realizing it. My school is a low income school. My kindergarten students have often never attended preK or daycare. Readiness skills often need to be learned before the K curriculum can even be started.
I have been a teacher for 21 years. I have always worked in title 1 schools. Each year we have to prioritize what we can buy and always put off the "extras" until we get a donation or I just spend my own money. That still only provides a little bit more, not everything the children should have. I would love to provide my students with as much as they deserve - the world!
We are a brand new Homeschooling Family. Educents has helped us begin to build our resources. We have loved using lapbooks, Life of Fred & STEM activities. The kids enjoy experiments & exploring outside. We would LOVE to win this Teacher Appreciation Contest! Educents is great at supporting Homeschool families and Traditional Teachers. We sure would love anyone reading this to give us a VOTE!
Please help us achieve our DREAM classroom. Most of this is curriculum and it would be a life changer for us as it would provide SOOO many resources to us that are simply not in the budget.
Please vote!!! Thank you! :D
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.
We are hoping to get help giving Zechariah the best home school opportunities we can. Zech is 11 and has special needs which right now means home schooling is our best option. Unfortunately some of the wants and needs are outside of our budget.
Thank you so much for your consideration and your vote!!
Ry is a very active and twice exceptional learner. He is asd and spd. We have been homeschooling this year in order to keep him engaged and to run with his obsessions. We would love to have a great amount of learning tools for him. Right now most of what we have is free downloads and he really could use this. I will be adding to his wish list as I go please vote for us.
I spend my days with five year old explorers, thinkers, artists, creators, writers, and friends in joyful environment that promotes discovery and community. I hope my children embrace learning, nature and kindness as they grow into confident students of the world.
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!
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!
I am homeschooling my grandsons and they are identical twins. The oldest has symptoms of Autism/Asperger's syndrome and faced being on meds & not being able to learn the way he needed to learn. I would LOVE to develop a Science curriculum that's geared toward his learning capabilities as he is interested in Science.
As a homeschool family, we could use as many votes as possible. Recently moving and downsizing on home space, anything free has been a blessing. We need everybody to vote once a day and pray we are one of the lucky winners.
I am a teacher in upstate New York. I currently teach 4th grade (this is my first year in fourth grade!). I have many great ideas that I would love to have in my classroom in order for students to be comfortable while working.
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!
I am a first year middle school teacher at a very low income school in Oklahoma. I am putting my heart and soul into my students! As a result, I've been spending much of my paycheck on my 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!
My name is Liz M and I am the proud owner and operator of Serious Fun Childcare. We are a licensed center for children ages 0-12. I'm just one member of a team of amazing professionals who work hard every day to provide learning opportunities in all areas of development for our students.
Please help us win our wishlist to provide our students with these fun, educational activities!
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.
I am a special education teacher at Idlewild Elementary. I teach in a self-contained classroom with small student teacher ratio. My kids abilities range from moderate to severe. Some have physical disabilities as well. They are great kids who enjoy coming to school and learning. They will always try their best and never give up.
I am always trying to find ways to add hands-on learning experiences for our students. Many of the items I wished for provide opportunities for the children to move around doing interactive activities. I also am trying to introduce computer/technology opportunities for my students by integrating things like beginning coding to my curriculum.
I am a retired Special Education teacher who dreamed of constructing a Preschool/Daycare environment to identify children's needs prior to Ktg, Meeting those needs requires accessing numerous resources to support the acquisition of skills needed to be successful in school. With your help and support, I hope to fulfill my mission to "build a solid foundation for a child's future."

I am going to graduate from Angelo State University in May and I have some great ideas for my classroom, but unfortunately my eyes are bigger than my wallet! I will need some help getting my new classroom set up! Please help me!
As a first year teacher, I did not have much experience with classrooms and was not aware as to what happens behind the scene. This first year has given me much experience. Working in the south bronx I see that many of these students lack supplies. I created my list based on what I saw my students needed. It's not just for me but for my students.
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.
I have three wonderful children and starting this fall I will be schooling two of them. My boys both love to build and sing so I'd like to get more supplies that allow them to express their creativity in multiple ways!
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.
I have two special needs kids we adopted out of foster care. I homeschool with another mom who also has special needs children. Our children have multiple disabilities and two are terminal and had to be taken out of public school due to our schools being unable to accommodate the smallest of our children's needs. Winning these supplies can allow them to reach their fullest potential.
We are a homeschooling tribe with soon to be 6 little learners. We have been schooling with various things we locate over the internet, but to have a set classroom would be amazing!
The Tribal Learners are:
Reggie Lee (the baby)

These little guys would love to have some new stuff to learn with in our classroom. Most of the stuff I have is from when I first started teaching , 15 years ago. We want some new better stuff to use. Please!
I teach a small, self contained classroom with grades K-6 of Exceptional Children who fall in a behavior spectrum of some sort (often with other challenges as well). I give 110% to my class, and often a large portion of my salary as well. I would love to enrich my class' learning with wonderful supplies.
I work at a great high needs school that doesn't have the funding that we need for the courses that I teach. I want to give my students the best experience I can and this funding could help me do that. Vote for my students to have the best education they can! :)
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. First and second grade students from different backgrounds will be learning in both English and Spanish. I need to set up a new classroom from scratch and you can help me by voting for me and my soon-to-be classroom.
Investigating Butterflies & Caterpillars! My preschool is creating a Monarch Way station. The dream classroom will provide the preschool with resources to expand learning while the students watch and learn about caterpillars and butterflies in the garden. The preschool serves students in Headstart and children with special needs and many do not have English as a first language .
Motivating the Unmotivated Readers!
How can you say no to a great book if your room is filled with them? A classroom library assorted with areas to read and stuffed animals and special furniture just for the readers. Who wouldn't want to read? My passion is to find that just right book for each student. I would love to create the perfect atmosphere for them.
Our kids are very interested in music. Our daughter is interested in starting a singing career and is working hard toward that goal! She is also interested in learning to play a few instruments to enhance her performances.
Homeschooling 3 kids for 2 year now, kids are 11,9,7 if we were to receive a wonderful opportunity such as this we will pass along items we are finished with.
With 3 different ages it can sometimes be a challenge to keep them interested in the core subjects but I do what I can. My list has things that will benefit our children and update resorses and organize or space.
Thank you for the vote!
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!

We are new to homeschooling, we have four children. At this point I am creating a curriculum of my own for my children; that span three different grade levels, with free tools I find online. $10,000 would allow us to be able to purchase manipulatives credible second language, and music curriculum, also books and supplies for our program. This would make a huge difference in our children's lives.
I am homeschooling both of my daughters. Winning would give them opportunities they otherwise wouldn't get. My youngest daughter has Sensory Possessing disorder and I have added lots of items for her that would help her throughout our day. For my oldest daughter I have added music items since she has been asking to learn an instrument.
Thank you for your consideration.
This is my first year homeschooling my 9, 6 and 3 year old. We are on a single family income and have nothing to start with, so this would help tremendously. I feel that God has led me to homeschool and I am passionate about having my children at home with me. I want to make it a wonderful experience for them. I would love to win this contest! God bless Educents for making this contest available.
My awesome student's all have Autism. My goal is to build community around Autism while showcasing my students skills and abilities.

Our class invites other classrooms to our room to share in learning about science, technology, engineering and math.

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.
I work in the classroom at Children's Hospital of Illinois. We tutor hospitalized children and provide school supplies & new books to our kiddos. We are a non-profit so we don't charge students or schools. We provide supplemental activities to school work received to provide fun for students while they are hospitalized. We would appreciate your help in providing opportunities for our students!
I have been home teaching my children for five years now. Currently I have a son and one daughter at home. My son if a very challenging learner which requires me to have more hands on and visual teaching tools. I would love to continue on home teaching my children. To have the resources to do so would be awesome!!!
As we all know, teachers have limited resources. Help a teacher to get effective resources that will help create a more positive learning environment. The kids would love to have these wonderful items in the classroom to help them have a complete, well-rounded education.
