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.

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.

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 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.

This is our first year Homeschooling. We have had a very good year and have enjoyed our time together. BUT, we could use some hands-on materials. We homeschool our GreatGrand children, two 3 year olds, one 6 year old, and one 10. So, as you can see, we need some variations in curriculum.
Good luck to all who are entered.
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.
More and more children are coming to school with sensory and learning needs and I would love to update my special education tool kit. Education and students are always changing and for me to keep up and better serve my students I need fresh educational tools, activities, and ideas. This wish list would help me so much to continue helping my students make huge progress during the school year.
We are entering into a wonderful new opportunity at your school.

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

I will be adding to his wish list as I go please vote for us.
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 am a stay at home, momma of 2 homeschoolers. I absolutely love being our children's teacher, and being able to choose what they learn, and to be able to teach them God's word through each of their subjects.
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:)
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!

Please vote for us. My girls both have special needs and both parents have health issues. But we love to have them home to teach them and they rather be home.
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.

Thanks in advance for your support!
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 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 teach K-12 vocal music at Rall's County school district in Missouri. For the past three years I have had three rooms. I move all my equipment from place to place. The constant moving from classroom to classroom has effected the condition of the instruments my students use. I would love to replace and add material to my classroom for the students. Please vote to help my students.
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.
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 a single mom of three of the most amazing kids. I homeschool all three and enjoy teaching them everyday. I also run a business watching dogs. 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.

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 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.
Just help me make my students' learning lively and adventurous. They need it and our school can't afford any teaching resources. I keep preparing my own, but I have limited time and abilities. We want to learn and be happy :-) !!!
Hi Everyone! I hope you take a moment to consider voting for me. Why? I have four young boys that I am homeschooling. Winning this contest would help bring so many amazing tools to our homeschool life. Thank you for considering us!!
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.
As a homeschooling single income family we could always use any help we can find to help with teaching resources!

This is a great opportunity!

I have been teaching for 30 years and my passion has always been in the classroom helping kids. I would love to have a classroom that is inviting, fun and a place to feel safe and motivated, all at once. I need a new look for the kids and myself.
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.

I'm a single, homeschooling mom to two fabulous girls, with very different needs. One has severe cognitive, speech and language delays due to Down Syndrome, one has some tough sensory issues. It would be amazing to have everything funded for our learning for the next few years. Thank you for voting!

We are in dire need of school supplies and educational supplements for our homeschooling program. Educents is doing an amazing contest where the MOST votes can win some very valuable and much needed educational supplies that would be wonderful for Jackson and his special learning needs.
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!
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 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
Jack is a bright and very active (almost) 5 year old. He is having some issues with ADD and sensory processing and so we have decided to homeschool him for Kinder. We did preschool at home and he has done an amazing job. We are a family of 5 and the cost of homeschool is a burden. I really hope this contest allows me to give him some of the tools that we need for his continued growth. God bless!
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 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 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 am the only high school teacher in a small title 1 school. Our school has no funding for upgrades for the science classroom. The technology in the laboratory dates back to the 1980's. With your vote, we will be getting 21st century light microscopes for the science classroom.
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 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!
My kids love science and building! The yearly subscription kits would be a great addition to their science education. And, the games will be a wonderful practice for my son. Teaching at home is very rewarding, but can get expensive. Thank you, Educents!
I am an ESOL teacher in the Rochester City School District. My students travel to us from difficult places, many of them are refugee students. They come from diverse backgrounds, and traumatic situations but they never seem to let this get in their way. They are the most resilient, humble, kind, appreciative and loving students any teacher could ever have. I am humbled by them everyday!

I am a third grade teacher who teaches in Fayetteville, NC. I teach at a title 1 school, with many students coming from families who need assistance in affording the basics. I want to provide my students with the best education I can offer. I would like to be able to provide supplies for my students and fun activities that would help prepare them for their future.
Everyone deserves to win their dream classroom. My special education students would welcome a classroom that is engaging, calming/active, comfortable. By starting with the basics and working up I hope to achieve a classroom that leads to success.
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.
This past year we have had some financial setbacks. In trying to change life for the better we have moved in with my husband's family. We have cut finances and this past school year didn't include a lot of new hands on activities. My children are really excited about the opportunity and possibility of winning a lot of awesome hands on tools. This would make for an amazing couple of years! Thanks!
New to Homeschooling and I would love to set up a very nice classroom for my girls. They are 8, 6 and 3. Decided to homeschool due to my 3 year old having seizures (epilepsy).

Being a 1st year teacher, my students are in need of games and books, manipulatives, arts & craft supplies, a reading nook, and standards-based enrichment items.

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!
I work as a lead teacher in a preschool classroom. I work hard to provide my students with the most enriching learning experiences I can offer on my limited budget.

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.

We would ABSOLUTELY LOVE it if we won. Thanksx

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!
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.
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.

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.
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! :)
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.
A busy, active and buzzing classroom is a must for students! They deserve the best resources and latest technology to help develop their skills and strengths. I hope you'll help us by voting! Thank you!!!! Mrs C's Stars :)

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!
