Our area schools are decent but overcrowded. We enrolled our son in FLV but we are not happy with the testing standards in our state. Our daughter will be going to 1st grade. So this will be my first year doing homeschool "solo". I am so excited to teach them away from a computer. It makes me proud to be able to be part of a supportive homeschooling lifestyle.
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!
The teachers and staff at my daughter's school (Elm St, Walpole) do a wonderful job with the children. Many of them buy materials and items for their classrooms. Please help me in providing a variety of wonderful educational, musical and STEM related items! Thank you!
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!

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 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 love teaching young minds and planting the seeds of love for learning. Not only is the teacher important but what we offer our children. A great classroom could really feed their interest in learning.
I am a homeschool mom with four GREAT kids! I want them to be able to learn all that they can and really succeed in life doing something they love! I stay at home to raise our children so we live off of one income so this would help immensely to have some super fun learning tools! Please vote for me!

Thank you for your consideration.
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 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.
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.
I am a first grade teacher at a Title One school. This means a majority of students are from low income families.

I am not currently a homeschooling mom, but I love to help my kids love learning and I like having good tools at home to supplement their school learning, and to have something to keep their minds engaged during the summer off months. Plus, if the need ever arises to homeschool, I'd like to already be prepared!

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.
After 13 years in the same building teaching early childhood special needs children , I am having to move to another building. All the supplies I have acquired throughout the years must stay in the building, hence starting over. These items will assist in making a fresh start and enhance my new early childhood special education preschool program.
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.
Hi! As a long time First Grade teacher, I could really use a face lift for my classroom! I'm switching schools next year and would love to start the school year with some fresh supplies for my Firsties. Please take a moment and vote!

Please vote!!! Thank you! :D
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.
My special needs would so benefit from these items. Their levels and needs are so diverse that I is difficult to get the materials necessary for them to really achieve and succeed. Please help me to help them?
Thank you for your votes (*_*)

Starting as a public school bus driver while finishing school, to being a one on one and classroom paraprofessional, finally becoming a teacher in my own class. I would love to win so that I may make my classroom even more inviting, enjoyable and motivating to remind the students that this is their home away from home.
I am a first time teacher and I have really enjoyed watching their minds grown and the kids beam as they grow.
I have noticed that when they are doing activities like build blocks they seem to learn more, than when you give them a piece of paper to learn from. This puts their imagination to work

I feel they would all greatly benefit from all of the products. I thank you in advance for voting for our wishlist and being a supporter of my students' education!

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!
I am a 1st grade special educator. I love my job and wouldn't do anything else! I love watching my students grow and learn and watching the little "lightbulb" moments I get to witness everyday. Please help me equip my classroom to help my students achieve! They have lots of obstacles, but access to high quality materials and instruction shouldn't be one of them!
We are a close homeschooling family who lives in Gaspe trying to build our own self sustaining home and garden with no help. We are adding a classroom to our home this year and this would really help to add to the room . It would be wonderful to have so many new items to add to a new room.
I am a special education teacher in a very small County with limited resources. I am privileged to work with the best students and staff. I want to make sure I am using all resources available to help my students achieve more than they ever thought possible.
I absolutely LOVE Educents! I have homeschooled my children for 13 years now, graduated 3 children and have 3 to go. I'm so thankful for Educents. They have so many freebies that you could literally homeschool for free. I bought Times Tales from them and my children ages 11, 9, and 5 all learned their times tables in no time! I would love to win my wishlist!!
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!
These items will help me as I work with my Resource students. Our funding is limited and these are great resources that my students would love to use. I would love to use these resources with my students. Thank you for your help and support.
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.
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.
Homeschooling my child is my most important goal for the next 10 years. If it takes a bit longer than so be it, but I want the best education system that will help her succeed in real life as school was difficult for her to thrive in.

With my wish list I plan to start science , math, and craft classes for our community. I already have a space I just need the materials. Please vote for me :)
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.

My husband and I are working to set up a school for our kids, and our friends kids, so they can learn in a setting like we did, with more hands on education and less standardized tests (as few as possible!)
My students deserve more. Each year our school budget gets less and less. I want my students to come to school feeling loved, comfortable and safe. My classroom is a home away from home. For some it's the only place they feel safe. Please help me help my students!
Winning this would greatly help my childrens education. Ever since my husband suffered a traumatic brain injury and I became disabled we have had to budget most of our money towards living expenses and medical needs. I have home schooled for the past 9 years to give my children the best one on one education I could. Please vote for me and share to others. Thank you.
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.
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."

This winning could enable me to give my students more adequate teaching tools and materials and give me an edge to teaching my sons who struggle with reading to excel. Thanks and God bless:D

I would love to be able to purchase some great new items including iPads to bring my classroom and our school up to date with all the new and exciting teaching opportunities that are available and just a little out of our budget.
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.
I work at an awesome school and we have the best teachers. They are so nice and love to make a difference in a child's live. One of those awesome teachers is Mrs. Washington. She love her kids and we as a school would love to win stuff for our classrooms. Like paper, crayons and good thing for the class. Thank You
I am a teacher in a county thst is 80 percent African-American ,10 percent Hispanic, and 10 percent Caucasian. Many of the students are from low income families where basic needs such as school supplies, snacks, and books for enjoyment are a neccessity. I would appreciate your vote to help my students feel motivated and confident about themselves and a love for school.
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.
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 would love for you to support me and help me get my wishlist.I teach Spanish to almost 700 students in Chesterfield, VA. I always try to change my lessons every year and that list will make it possible.
Thank you for your votes.

Please vote for my classroom! In my class I have 20 4-year-olds, with the majority of them being English Language Learners. Our school is a Title I school, so funding is very limited meaning often times we do not have access to certain resources that we need in order to offer them the best education.
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!
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.
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! :)
I am a kind, honest, giving person. I am owner director and teacher of my own preschool . "My kids" and my school is my life. I wish I could afford to give more. Find something you love and you never have to work a day I your life.
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 would love to win my wish list. I'm a home school mom who is always looking for ways to help keep my childrens interest in learning. I have one child who is a Kinesthetic learner so everything has to visual, audio and hands on learning. This would help me for many years to come.
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!
If you can take a minute to vote for us we would really appreciate it! We would love to win and stock our classroom for next year. There are so many fun things we want to learn about and would love to have these supplies to make it easier. Games, videos, and hands on experiments make learning more fun and it sticks with the kids when they do it themselves. Thank you!
Please vote to help me win a combined $10,000 for my DREAM classroom! My students will be SUPER excited and this will assist in providing a welcoming environment. Children need an environment that they feel safe and one that they LOVE to dwell in daily. If you know me, I will do whatever it takes to make my students learning process as rich and fulfilling as possible!
I teach in an inner city school district where most of the curriculum is outdated, serviceable and missing manipulative tools for the students to use. I serve a highly diverse student population within my classroom that includes ESL and Special needs students. Please help me attain the supplies that my students desperately need to reach their academic goals. Thank you for your support!
As a first year teacher in a small school, I am hoping to have my wish list win so that I can outfit my 6th Grade Reading and Language Arts classroom library with the latest books and curriculum materials to support my reading and writing curriculum, further engaging and supporting the development of my students' reading and writing abilities.
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.

This would be a wonderful way to build the tradition and leave a legacy of life long learners.

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.
My students attend an alternative school which is in desperate need of resources. Most of the students I teach are bright and willing to learn and have learned to make do with limited materials. Your vote can help make learning become more vital and beneficial for them. Thanks!
Please Vote for me. I would at an alternative school and I want to provide career and college readiness programming to these students to help unleash their potential. I want them to know that they too can go to college and be successful.

Please vote for me. I am in need of material for my RTI class room.. I teach/tutor kids that are below grade level in math and reading. Please help me close the gap and get these kids back on grade level. Thanks in advance. Tracy Y Butler.
Teaching is the most rewarding, enriching, humbling and awe-inspiring experience. I am a Kindergarten teacher and would love more than anything to be able to offer my students the subscription kits, science and maths resources that I so often drool over. Good luck to everyone:)
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!
Our district has moved towards and inquiry purposeful play based philosophy this year. To be successful I need to redo almost everything in my classroom. I am wanting to create inquiry tubs which require lots of money as well as other big ticket items. Please vote for me and help my students!!
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 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 love when my students have time to explore and learn through play, but I don't have much to help inspire them. Winning my wish list would allow me a chance to further share my love of learning with my kinder kiddos!

It is a place for students to access and explore information in a variety of formats, analyze the information in group discussions, and produce amazing projects. Please help us grow! Vote every day to increase our chances of winning. Thank you!
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!
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.
We homeschool and I have four kids from teenager to toddler. With my wishlist I could be set till the last one is done and ready for real world. The school system failed us with my youngest son who is a little special needs. I have found my kids strengths and weaknesses since we started. Thanks for your vote.
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.
Taking on homeschooling while working a full-time job has been quite stressful but very rewarding! Please help support my family's homeschooling endeavors by voting for us in this contest! Winning would really help my family provide a better learning experience for my daughter Maia. I would appreciate your help in making this happen! Thank you!
I am a Catechism teacher in our parish church. I would love to have each of my students receive a set of books so they could study with them. I would love to make real lanterns for a project so they could hold them out and shine to others the light from inside them!
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!
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!
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'm moving from 1st grade to K! I'd like to have alternative seating like pillows, yoga type balls, peddle desks, tall tables for standing, low tables for sitting on the floor, scoop rockers, bean bags, cushions & other seating to meet kid's learning styles. I want to provide educational toys and games to make learning fun! Vote for me to help make a great 1st impression of school! Please share!
Always looking for ways and supplies to help improve my teaching and my students' learning. This can be an incredibly expensive endeavor, as many of you know. So, please help me achieve my goals by voting for my wishlist to be funded.
Thank you so very much!
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.
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.
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.
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!
It seems like public schools will forever struggle to provide basic text and tools to support the needs of all students. Meanwhile, teachers do whatever it takes to get things done using innovation and clever contests! My students battle emotional and behavioral issues, that coexist with their learning disabilities. We have to step outside of the box to find tools and resources to learn!
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.
I love being a homeschool Mom, 14 years of it now :) I have some pretty fun items in my EduCents wishlist: the whisper phone & toobaloos for reading practice during quiet times, all the Magformers sets they have (my kids fell in love with these a few years ago at a local childrens museum and would love to have all these sets!), the anti-coloring book, guitars, and more!
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!
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!
As you can imagine, funding in the low socioeconomic areas are limited. This is no different in the area that I teach. Many times my husband and I purchase the items needed to enhance my students learning experiences. There are some items including technology that I would love to have for my classroom that I just cannot purchase. For this reason, please vote for me!
I work in a PK-2 elementary school. Many of the students come from homes at the poverty level with little or no access to technology. I would like to provide my students with iPads and computers to assist in their learning and facilitate differentiation in their learning.
As a special needs teacher my students that are in need of a variety of educational tools to meet unique needs. As a I teacher at a rural school in SW Oklahoma..grades 7-12th grades. Budget cuts are everywhere! I have over 25 special needs and work hard to help each achieve successes. TEACHERS good luck & happy voting all~Please share and invite others to vote.
Hello, how can you put a persuasive story in 400 characters? Much like everyone else, education is so important to our family. Homeschool chose us, we used public for a short amount of time, it did not work for us.the school nurse failed to follow instruction given to her by a medical specialish which lead us to home school our family of 4.
I'm a homeschooling mom of two boys ages 8 and 6. I am also pregnant with our 4th child and I am struggling with ESRD (end stage renal disease) and have been on dialysis for four years. Homeschooling has been the best option for us due to my boys learning styles and personalities but it can be costly. Winning this contest would help us out greatly and remove at least one of the financial burdens.
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.
Every child has a story in my class, and it is my wish to create the classroom of their dreams. I would like my children not only to feel safe and loved, but enriched in their 'second home'! There's nothing more delightful than to see their faces light up when they are learning in a fun way. Please support me, so I could make my kids' dream come true!
I'm a homeschooling mom, so any items for our classroom come out of our single income budget. It's a lot of pressure to provide engaging and educational resources for my girls. Winning this would be a dream come true :)
Hi! I am a mother of 4 great children and we are a home school family. My children are very curious and love absorbing new information. We would really like to provide our learning area with educational interactive activities and resources as we continue our educational journey.
