I have always been active in arts in education, I also homeschool my daughter and have done the same for relatives. For years I worked in different schools teaching arts in ed. I learned that bringing in things they could touch, see, grow, build, and studying various cultures creates interest. This funding would give me the resources to do this at home and in school programs in Statesville, NC.
I have been working with students with Special needs for over 12 years. 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.
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!

I teach in a Title 1 school where over half of our students struggle with poverty. We need materials beyond just books. Being able to do hands-on experiments would allow my students to learn through real world scenarios. Please vote for my class so together we can help them get not only excited about math and science, but also about becoming life-long learners!!
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.
Hi everyone! I'm a Mom of 5 year old twins and a 3 year old and I want to home school my kids! Vote for me and you will be helping a family get a great curriculum and supplements for 3 little growing minds! Thanks so much for considering us!
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.
I'm a 2014 Teach For America corps member teaching 2nd grade at a charter school in SE Washington, DC. Next year, I'll continue to teach as a TFA alum. The majority of the items on my wish list are those that my students may not have access to. Looking forward to another great school year with my civic leaders as they make academic & social-emotional growth! Your vote is greatly appreciated :)
We are a small childcare center. Our primary goal is ensure every child has the opportunity for school readiness. This funding would be a huge blessing as we would be able to purchase new classroom supplies, books, curriculum items, etc without passing on the financial burden to our parents. 20% of our children fall at/below the poverty level. This funding would help us achieve that.
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.
Every vote counts. I'm trying to win supplies and curriculum to help support my children's education at home. We really need your support to be one of the lucky seven.
All you need to do is log in daily and vote for us.

Hi everyone! I'm looking to decorate the classroom of my dreams! It's such a wonderful feeling to have students and visitors walk into my classroom and say: "Wow!" "That's nice!". I would like an opportunity to make this happen, so I need your vote! :)

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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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 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 am excited to get curriculum and games set up and ready play. Family participation and gatherings are my general idea. I am almost done getting my business degree and would love to have the supplies ready to start up a family gathering sort of event which hopefully will evolve into a regular daily to weekly community playtime. Learning happens in playtime!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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.
I have been teaching live online science and math classes to middle and high school homeschool and school students for five years and I absolutely LOVE it! I am looking to get a much-needed new computer to keep up with the changing technology and to purchase software to improve my live classes and curriculum for my online students. I'd be much obliged for the assistance and so would my students!
I am a K/1 teacher in Compton, CA.We are a low income dist and need as much help as we can get.Teachers are putting much of our hard-earned paychecks into the classroom, rather than into our own budgets.I would love to be able to get these to use in my classroom and spark that love of learning these children so desperately need!Please vote for me and help me accomplish this goal.Thank you.
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.
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.
My children are my whole world. I'm so blessed to be able to stay at home with them and train them up in the way they should go. Of course being a single income family, money is tight. Please help us get the classroom of our dreams.
I teach students age 7-11 in a self-contained special education class in a Title 1 school. Three-quarters of my students are at or below the poverty line. My students and I would love new materials for our classroom! Please consider voting for us.
We have very motivated learners at Medina High School who are eager to learn Mandarin Chinese. I have been constantly searching for new and innovative technologies that would enhance students’ learning. Please help us build our dream classroom that will provide more learning opportunities for our students!
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.

Please vote and help us win our dream classroom!
Being able to mold the minds of my students to the bright side of thinking it what I tend to do best. I love to lift my students into their search for information. I love when my students win awards sure. Each loss isn't a loss but a new way of thinking outside of the box. Sometimes it's harder for others to be on the same page as you but don't let that change who "you" are as a person.
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!

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 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 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 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!
By no fault of our own, we live in a very rough, urban area known as Brightmoor. However, we are just a hard working group of young Detroiters! We have character building to focus on improving our emotions then, English, history, science, math and fitness. We are reading about Miracle's Boys right now because many of us can relate to the story. We'd appreciate ANY donations!
Hi! I've been teaching Common Core Algebra and
Consumer Math to students with special needs. We do not have enough materials to differentiate for each of their individual needs. Please help me show them that math can be fun!!!!!!
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.
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.
Please vote for me and help me give these students the education they deserve despite all the crazy budget cuts we are experiencing!
I work at a primary school in Rural NSW and have started trying to get a maker space up and running for all students from K - 6. There is so much out there but unfortunately most is out of our reach due to budget constraints! Please help me to help 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 retired from the military and became a homeschool teacher to my grandson. He developed anxiety while attending regular school along with a number of medical problems that kept him home. He is behind for his age. There is so much I want to show and teach him. Winning the dream classroom would definitely help in so many ways.
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!
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.
HELP ME WIN... my Dream Childcare & PreSchool Classroom! SHARE this post! The biggest cost a teacher incurs is the teaching resources for their classroom. We rely on family, friends and co-teachers much of the time. We are always on the lookout for sales, discounts etc. We spending a majority of our time thinking of the children we teach. Help me win this awesome gift.
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!
I work at Frederick Douglass Elementary in Overtown. I would like to win this prize to give my students a space to forget about their troubles at home. A place that is well decorated and clean. A place where everything is taken care for them. A class and community that serves as their safe haven.
I am not a mother by nature as i have no kids of my own, but my kids at my school own me body, spirit and soul. They are such little oaks of righteousness and soak up every encouragement, instruction and question with such passion and zeal. They deserve your votes--not me, but them because i believe in them,who they are and who they can be--help me build that bridge
People should vote for me because I have a 3 and 5 yr old that are full of thought and imagination that I am afraid they would lose in the test happy public schools system. I cannot afford parochial school and I am doing my best to teach them at home.
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!
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:)
I would really be appreciative of it I homeschool my son due to him having asbergars and severe anxiety he can not attend public school and they was not willing to help I just want him to not feel doomed by his disabilitys but have the same education offered to others thank you and God bless
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.
Please take a moment to help us win some great curriculum that could help my boy. Being a single mom with a rare neuromuscular disease and IV Infusions this contest could be a huge blessing. Homeschooling is the best option for my son who has Aspergers. Please consider stopping by once daily to help us each vote increases our chances of winning.
I just completed my first year of teaching. Throughout my college career, I learned how to educate using lots of interactive technology (SMART Boards, interactive projectors, etc.). However, my district currently does not have these interactive elements in place in regards to the whole group instruction. I would love an interactive projector or a SMART Board.
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 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 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.
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. They need a special place where they can come in to plan, collaborate, build, engineer, problem solve, and be creative. Please vote for me to make my dream a reality. Our students are awesome kids who truly deserve this experience. Thank you!
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.
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
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!
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!
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!
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 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.
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!
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.
We all know students in the inner city do not fair so well in school. The school 2 blocks from my home is no different. This is the school my kids went to until I had to move them to better their education. I would love to win these books and donate them to this school. Please help me to help our future by helping these kids!
I'd love to coordinate family learning events through my local homeschooling group, I've selected quantity items in such a way to share through the homeschool office. Please help us to win.
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR VOTE.
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.
We are a Title One, 100% free breakfast and lunch elementary school. These amazing resources would help promote student growth and success. Help us realize our Dream....Vote today! Thanks in advance for voting for our class.
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.
My classroom is the school library. This space serves the entire school. Here students create in a MakerSpace, & seek out quiet work areas with comfortable seating for reading. Students collaborate on technology as they learn to navigate digital content & print resources. My dream space would accommodate all needs & create an open, inviting atmosphere that benefits all students.
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!
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.
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!
We are a Title One, 100% free breakfast and lunch elementary school in Norfolk, VA. Having available resources for our students would help promote growth and success. Help us reach our greatest potential with our future. Thank you in advance for voting for our class.
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 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 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 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.
The Hammond Community Library serves a wide variety of ages with their various programs for homeschool students, public school students, and pre-learners. With the $10,000 we can continue to grow our programs and offer a wide variety of new exciting programs! Thank you for your vote!
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. :)
We have 4 kids varying in ages with different abilities who love learning. If we had the money we would indulge more in all of their curiosities such as science experiments and a greenhouse where they can see God's wonderful creation grow right before their eyes. We decided to homeschool so that we can give our children the best education we can and the most of our attention as we can.
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?
Vote for me!!!!!!! I am an awesome teacher who love teaching!!!!!! I teach at a wonderful school with wonderful students that have special needs. I know that they would truly benefit and excelle more with some new computers laptops tablets and new desk. So vote for me!!!!!!! Thanking you in advance!!!!!!
I am Visual Arts Educator in NY. We are a high needs district. Unfortunately due to yearly tight budgets it can be difficult to supply my scholars with the necessary tools to complete various projects. My students have amazing talent that can be overlooked because we do not have the tools or materials needed.
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!
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
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!
PLEASE Help us to continue to create life long learners using individualized, Christ centered methods in our home at Divine Hope Catholic Academy!! Every vote helps us!!! THANK YOU!!!
Robert David, Izzabella, Zeke, Gabriella, Brittney and Robert
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!
I am a parent council member with 3 children of school age. I would love to be able to add to their educational experience by contributing to their class rooms. Lets help teachers by providing some fun educational tools to their rooms :)
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.
Please vote for me. This would be a tremendous blessing to our kids. They are so deserving of this great prize.I am a LOYAL and DEDICATED teacher who ALWAYS put students first. This would be a tremendous blessing to our kids. They are so deserving of this great prize.
Our third grade classroom is in the highest poverty county in southeast Kansas. Due to high-stakes testing, our focus has been extensively on reading and math, but our students are missing out on science and real-world applications! We want to transform our classrooms into STEM-based, literacy-integrated classrooms. Please help us get supplies so our kids can be true 21st Century learners!
As a member of the math department and the STEAM team, I am working on developing an engaging and meaningful math and STEAM classroom where students can explore, problem solve, and create.

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). I want to try to provide her with as much normalcy that I can. I would love to be able to get the supplies and set up a classroom for the 3 of them. I want to be able to get the best curriculums for them.

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 have always enjoyed working with children of all ages. I have been teaching in various capacities for the past 18 years. My passion is to teach children that they can be someone great and they have great things to offer the world through their gifts and their knowledge. I fully believe that each child has a purpose in life and each child is a gift from God.
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!
I am moving almost 2,000 miles away from my friends and family to teach first grade this August.
